The Emma Press Picks


The Emma Press Picks are a series of short, affordable and colourful poetry pamphlets which showcase contemporary poets at all stages of their careers and present a slice of the current poetry scene to the wider public.

Each Pick has a theme or concept and is illustrated in black-and-white drawings or prints. They are designed to feel approachable and we hope they will attract readers who might not usually buy poetry books.

The Picks currently include:

  1. The Flower and the Plough, by Rachel Piercey (January 2013)
  2. The Emmores, by Richard O’Brien (January 2014)
  3. The Held and the Lost, by Kristen Roberts (March 2014)
  4. Captain Love and the Five Joaquins, by John Clegg (July 2014)
  5. Malkin, by Camille Ralphs (November 2015)
  6. DISSOLVE to: L.A, by James Trevelyan (March 2016)
  7. The Dragon and The Bomb, by Andrew Wynn Owen (February 2017)
  8. Meat Songs, by Jack Nicholls (March 2017)
  9. Bezdelki, by Carol Rumens (July 2017)
  10. Birmingham Jazz Incarnation, by Simon Turner (September 2017)
