Contemporary Small Press

Hem Press

West Midlands

Hem Press is an independent publisher from Birmingham, England. While our primary goal is to explore contemporary literature in the UK, we publish writers from around the globe. Our publications include ekphrastic writing, narrative verse, visual poetry, experimental memoir and more. Our titles take on the spirit of garments. This emphasises books as objects, languageā€™s palpability and the joining of edges, whether stylistic or formal.
