THE WORK OF THE
BLACK CAT POETRY PRESS
A small independent press based in Kent, England. We publish anthologies and pamphlets.
Walrussey takes a dive into the poetry of witness to these 'unusual shells'. Here are odes to the creatures of the sea, an 'ocean in miniature'. Hainsworth's poems develop our empathy for her sea creations, from the glorious cathedral of a whale to an early morning manatee. This connection to a fragile environment enables us, like the Octopus in her opening poem, to see the beauty in the fragile.
- Jessica Mookherjee, author of Notes from a Shipwreck, Nine Arches Press
We are open for pamphlet submissions during the month of October each year. Please do not send submissions outside of this window as they will not be read. We aim to respond within 6 weeks after the submission window has closed however we are a small press so please give us a nudge if you haven't heard back in this time.
Please send your manuscripts in word to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include an introduction of yourself and your book in the body of the email.
We are interested in all subjects but have a particular interest in eco poetry and stories of displacement.
We are not interested in poetry that is bigoted in any way.
