Poetry Lives!
5 books of poetry

Weight 1.5 kg
And my poetry list just keeps going with style. Each of these books has very different qualities in form and approach. The Upswell Poetry imprint has so far yielded up 7 significant shortlistings in awards: as an external measure this is, understandably, a thrill for the publisher, not to mention the poets! Here are five books across 2024 that I’ll send to you as they arrive back from the printer.

Subscribe to Upswell as a gesture of solidarity and support!

Independent publishing is a precarious financial business. Subscribing to a new publishing venture is one way of offering support. You sign up in trust of our eye for a good book and we’ll send you our releases in that year, postage-free in the month of publication.

We pay attention at Upswell to both strong editorial standards and beautiful and robust design by Chil3. We are proud of this look. In the back of each book is the story of our font: Foundry Origin.

With each subscription you receive a message from the publisher and the author: from Terri-ann about her selection of the book, and from the author about some aspect, or back story, of their book.
