This blog gives news and reviews of Waterloo Press poets their readings and publications.

And also notices about poetry readings and festivals in the UK and abroad.


Waterloo Press is a publisher with a proven track record in producing high-quality volumes of poetry. It’s already a co-winner in Staple’s Alt-Gen niche poetry publisher competition. Individual collections too have been praised in Poetry Review, and by its 2002-05 editor Robert Potts and others for sheer beauty of production – as well as the contents! Some say there’s been nothing like us since Trigram Press in the 1970s. That’s heady, but we’re delighted.

Waterloo has three aims:

to promote regional poets on a national and international basis;

to promote established or long-neglected modern and modernist poets with a broad appeal on the same footing;

and to provide a forum for all those in a specially bound Arts bi-annual journal with the broadest appeal of all (Eratica).

Originally dependent on its founder and main benefactor, Sonja Ctvrtecka, and a variety of funding sources, since November 2004 Waterloo has been supported by major annual Arts Council Grants.
