Waterloo Press offers readers an eclectic list of the most inventive and stimulating poetry from the UK and abroad. Our beautifully designed books range from lost modernist classics to translations of senior international poets and vibrant collections by the best young British poets around.

Waterloo Press brings radical and marginalised voices to the fore, mirroring the aesthetic value of their work in outstanding book design, including dust jackets; large font; and original artwork for the covers. As we launch our refreshed website, we are proud to announce that LIT UP, our new mentoring and publishing programme for emerging poets of colour, is now nearing completion with nine titles scheduled to appear in 2019-2020. With its diverse and growing list, Waterloo Press breaks down the borders between contemporary schools of poetry, to forge a new poetics based on respect for craft, innovation, and the music of real communication.
