Pindrop Press

Welcome to Pindrop Press. We are a small, independent poetry publisher based in France with our headquarters in Glasgow. The press was founded in 2010 by Jo Hemmant and handed over to Sharon Black, a Pindrop poet, in March 2016.

Our mission is to publish poetry that is exciting, fresh and innovative.

If you would like to purchase any of our books, please visit the Bookshop.


* We are delighted to announce the publication of Bridport 2017 prizewinner Mary-Jane Holmes's debut collection Heliotrope with Matches and Magnifying Glass. Describing the collection, Dave Lordan calls Mary-Jane "perhaps the most convincingly rural and at the same time convincingly contemporary English poet since Ted Hughes". Mary-Jane, a Forward Prize nominee, is chief editor of Fish Publishing, Ireland and lives in the North Pennines.

* Roselle Angwin's fourth solo collection A Trick of the Light was launched in April 2018. It is the culmination of 35 years worth of poems written on the tiny Hebridean island of Iona. Gathered together for the first time, these poems are testament to the potentially transformative nature of place and history, both personal and geographical; they are testament to our ‘covenant with wild’. A Westcountry poet, Roselle leads the 'Fire in the Head' creative and reflective writing programme, and a programme for the ecological imagination, 'The Wild Ways'.

* Also this spring we have Marie Naughton's debut collection, A Life, Elsewhere, coming up.
