Wild Women Press publish words that shine, words that are born the wild way. We have an ethos of direct creative action. We do everything but the printing ourselves (we use a local small printer with the appropriate name of Cerberus!) We have small print runs of unique poetry and re-invest all sales back into our projects.

Our publications celebrate the wild voices of the poets from our collective, as well as the women (and sometimes men) who have shared in our creative adventures over the years. All are voices of love and honest inspiration. Wild Women Press: a poetry press with a wild mission!

Byron Makes His Bed

Acerbic, full-bodied and unashamedly passionate, in Byron Makes His Bed we find the voice of a modern-day troubadour, singing her heart out.

Rilke Tattoo

Written during an intense bout of hypergraphia, Rilke Tattoo is a rare chance to peek inside a poet’s head. With an all star cast featuring Rilke in a frock, Dylan, Satan, Minotaurs, Wallace & Gromit, polyphonic starlings and midnight rambling hooded spirits, this collection is original, insightful, and wonderfully weird.
