What’s new with the Emma Press?

* New! Slow Things: Poems about Slow Things *

Slow Things Sloth

Just in time for a leisurely summer: Slow Things, our new anthology of poems about everything slow. We’ve collected poems about slow moments, slow creatures and (of course) slow things, including parkin and ice.


* Upcoming events, including our leaving party *

Leaving Party

We’re leaving Reading! Join us in The Oracle on Saturday 8th August for a day of poetry and fond farewells – read more about it here. We’ve also got poetry readings and our children’s tour events all across the country.


* Myths and Monsters: A Children’s Poetry Tour *


We’re absolutely thrilled to launch our poetry tour for children, supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. You can read the press release here and all the tour dates here.


* Introducing our first children’s poetry book *


We’ve just published our first children’s book, Falling Out of the Sky: Poems about Myths and Monsters, aimed at children aged 9+. It features some fantastic poets and is fully illustrated.
