Pindrop Press


Jo Hemmant and I are pleased to announce our new independent poetry press, Pindrop. We will be producing chapbooks (pamphlets) and full-length collections, working with new, emerging and established poets.

As many of you know, this is not our first foray into publishing: we are the editors of ouroboros review, a magazine for contemporary poetry and art which takes advantage of the latest technologies and appears both online and in print.

The press feels like a natural progression from the review and we are thrilled to have signed up the very talented South African poet, Michelle McGrane for our first book. Michelle has already written two collections of poetry, Fireflies and Blazing Stars (2002) and Hybrid (2003). This latest work will be out in early 2010, with a London launch.

Here’s an article about Michelle from KNZ Literary Tourism with an example of Michelle’s work, Mountain Picnic. You can also read three of her poems on pages 4 and 5 of ouroboros review, issue 1.

    Collin, I know, I know. One thing at a time, one day at a time. We’re so lucky to have Michelle on board. Thanks for your vote of confidence. I’m sure I’ll be coming to you for advice.

    And thanks to everyone else for your good wishes!

    I am so excited!! I told Jo the same thing, but it should be repeated a thousand times…I want to be first in line to buy the book, okay? Michelle is an awesome poet, and you and Jo are excellent editors. It will definitely be top quality. Congratulations & please keep us updated, so we can tell everyone we know!
