Pindrop Press

Welcome to Pindrop Press, an independent poetry publisher based in Glasgow with its editorial headquarters in France. The press was founded in 2010 by Jo Hemmant and taken over by Sharon Black in 2016.

"Pindrop Press [...] have developed a well-deserved reputation for high value production and careful choice of poets" – Patrick Lodge in The High Window, November 2023.

Pindrop's mission is to publish poetry that is exciting, well-crafted and fresh.

* Please join us for the online launch of new collections, by Jonathan Totman and Fiona Larkin, on Sunday 10 December at 7.30pm (GMT). To register, just email Details of both books, below.

* Pindrop is delighted to announce the publication of Jonathan Totman's second collection, The Sessions, a sequence of fifty sonnets – representing the ‘50-minute hour’ of a traditional psychotherapy session – exploring therapy from the perspective of both client and therapist. Drawing on the author’s work as a clinical psychologist, this poignant, sensitive collection pays tribute to the healing power of connection.

* Also out now is Fiona Larkin's debut collection, Rope of Sand, a compelling, nuanced debut which scrutinises instability and asks what we hold onto, and what we let go.

* Congratulations to Mike Barlow whose poem My Uncle Ivan was commended in the National Poetry Competition 2023, and to Elisabeth Sennitt Clough whose poem The Black Dress, from her collection The Cold Store, was commended and published in the Forward Prize Anthology 2023.

* Earlier this year we were pleased to publish Photofit by Martin Jago. Still to come this year is new work by Jo Haslam. Pindrop is very excited to welcome those poets on board.
