Anyone that has written poetry in the last few years knows how difficult it is to get their work published. Ireland is rich with high quality literary publications that specialise in poetry; both in print and online, however, it is not as satisfying as having a collection in print form.
Most poetry publishers in Ireland have seen their incomes reduced due to funding cuts by the Arts Council and local county/city councils. Those cuts are unlikely to be reversed in the next few years. As a result, even established poets have struggled to get their work published.
We want to help poets publish their collections, enabling them to give and sell copies to their friends, families, local libraries, fellow poets, writers groups and ensure that their work is not lost or forgotten. Therefore we came up with a special package for poets and their collections.
Most poetry collections with the exception of anthologies are B size and 60-64 pages. More than enough for a poet to expand on their theme or show their best work. Based on that, we are offering the following
Formatting/Typesetting of the collection to B size
Printing and binding of two hundred softcover books with black and white pages.
ISBN and barcode registration so that the book can be sold in the major shops
All of the above for just €800, or €4 per book.
The books will be printed on Munken Bookwove and bound using our unique Ota-bind method. Hardbacks, more pages and colour pages cost extra but can be organised if the poet wants it.
Price excludes delivery and is for a limited time only.
