Caterpillar Poetry: An Introduction
Caterpillar Poetry is a small publishing venture based near Sowerby Bridge in the Calder Valley, Yorks, devised and facilitated by myself, Simon Zonenblick, which aims to publish limited edition poetry collections.
I launched the press in the spring of 2013, with the publication of my own debut collection - Little Creatures: Poems of Insects, Small Mammals and Micro-organisms - and am thrilled to announce that this autumn Caterpillar Poetry will be publishing Nuala Fagan's Not All Birdsong, the second collection from the talented Nuala, who is an Irish poet living in Halifax.
For news and excerpts of both of these collections, please keep an eye out for this blog! Over the coming weeks I will be filling it up with essays, reviews, videos, photographs, links - and of course with poetry. Caterpillar Poetry will be publishing several collections from poets local to this region, and from further afield, as well as possible anthologies, during the next six to twelve months, and holding poetry evenings, readings and stalls. Caterpillar Poetry does not charge for publishing, submissions, editorial services - or any element of the process whatsoever. Indeed, profits will be shared with the authors, who will of course also receive an agreed quantity of copies for their own use. Caterpillar Poetry will also promote the books and support the poet through all aspects of publication.
If you would like to submit work for future consideration, to learn more about the project, or simply to have a chat about poetry, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
