Graft Poetry's philosophy is simple: the very best in contemporary poetry at affordable prices. The poets to be published, in the first instance were at least, ones who had not previously published poetry collections but who seem to us to deserve to be better known in book form.
The first book we brought out in 2008 was the hugely successful and critically acclaimed Without a dog by Julia Deakin, and we are now pleased to announce Julia's second collection: Eleven Wonders. Other collections include works from Andrew Boobier, Nicholas Bielby, Adam Strickson and Chris Hardy.
We are pleased to announce, in conjuction with Fighting Cock Press, the publication of Fifty: Fifty, an anthology celebrating 50 years of the Pennine Poets. Includes new work from Graft poets Nicholas Bielby, Julia Deakin and Andy Boobier:
Enjoy this wide ranging and illuminating anthology.
