The 87 is a small press, publishing collective, events organiser, and platform for discussion. It was founded in 2018 by South London based poets Kashif Sharma-Patel, Azad Ashim Sharma, and architect Devin Maisuria.
We are committed to publishing the very best of bold, innovative and experimental writing from emerging and established writers. We publish poetry, fiction and non-fiction and are especially interested in supporting writers from under-represented, minority groups - we know how important it is that you get your voice heard. With this in mind, 87 Press seeks to maximise the space we offer writers. Although small, we think big, and offer a creative hub that provides a virtual and real space where you can link up and share ideas. We also host monthly events at the Roebuck in London SE1 which are growing in size, success, and give us the chance to meet our readers in person. To get a sense of the kind of books we publish, please check out our authors and books.
