Yaffle is a brand new independent publisher of poetry. We aim to produce pamphlets and poetry collections of a high standard, introduce new voices and release work by established poets. We will also consider publishing second editions of previously published pamphlets and poetry collections, providing the poet owns the copyright to their work.
We aim to support our poets by hosting and compering book launches and arranging other events/readings when possible. We aim to engender an informal and friendly relationship with our poets by being approachable, supportive and going that extra mile for our family of Yaffles.
Our managing editors, Mark Connors and Mike Farren, have previous experience working for independent publishers and running and organising poetry nights and literature festival events. Both our managing editors are award-winning poets and have been widely published in magazines, anthologies and single author pamphlets and collections.
Our creative manager, Lorna Faye Dunsire, has designed and compiled anthologies. Lorna is also a poet and runs regular spoken word nights and literature festival events.
We are not accepting unsolicited manuscripts at this time.
