Contemporary Small Press

Backroom Poetry

South West

We are a new set up. We like DIY, edgy, punk, alternative, surreal, out-there, lo-fi, a bit different. 

We are a small time, low scale publishing press. We are very much DIY. All chapbooks will be printed, folded, and stapled in the back room by the back room staff. 

If we ask a poet to publish their chapbook with us, we will agree to print only 50 copies, send them 10, keep a small number for our poetry shelf and to send for review, and sell the reston our website. If a poet wishes to publish their chapbook with back room poetry they will obviously be happy with this simple no fuss, no frills, no contract, agreement. Oh, and we will also give the poet 20% discount off the price of all our chapbooks forever!
