Hesterglock Press is run by Sarer Scotthorne and paul hawkins. We started up as Tableglock Press (co-run by Paul Hawkins & Simon McCormack) in 2013, publishing themed, pocket-sized poetry anthologies under the name of Boscombe Revolution. Sarer and paul continued from 2014 as Hesterglock Press, publishing hand-made pamphlets of flash fiction and poetry. In 2016 we began to use a print-on-demand printer which enabled us to start publishing fully-bound book collections.

From 2016 Hesterglock Press publish only poetry. We’re more interested in formally interesting, experimental poetry. We are not interested in modern lyric poetry, emotive confessionalism, or vague discussions of love, life, and poetic craft. Sarer and paul also co-curate (along with Sad Press & Moot Press) #Anathema, a monthly series of experimental poetry/writing events in Bristol.

We’re always keen to receive submissions or proposals from any of the following:

* work from a women’s / feminist perspective
* work from Women/men of Colour
* work from poets and writers of all genders, sexual orientations and dis/abilities

NOTE: We are currently closed for submissions 

Hesterglock Press has been supported by Lit Up! and Seedbed

No neoliberal capitalism. No homophobia, transphobia, racism or misogyny
