"Each book that comes out of the Penned in the Margins stable is perfectly packaged, super high quality and guaranteed to make readers think a little differently"

Reader, Saboteur Awards

"These poems centre human life by showing us how expansive our world truly is."

Kayo Chingonyi

A book of witnessing and overhearing, Natural Phenomena is the long-awaited debut collection by Meryl Pugh.


"In his visceral, virile verse, Wright skewers the essential cadences of all political drama"

The Stage

We all want something to believe in. It's 1987 and Frankie Vah gorges on love, radical politics and skuzzy indie stardom.


"A woman stands at the edge of a cliff, looking out to the horizon. A church bell. Footsteps."

Justin Hopper

The Old Weird Albion moves across the Sussex and Hampshire Downs, interrogating the high, haunted landscape of the English South
