"Seven bums and fourteen legs,
a brazen ecstasy which begs
the question some of us are asking -
is Peter Goulding multi-tasking?"

Chapbook printing

Smithereens Press
was recently set up with the intention of producing high-quality poetic texts of chapbook-length to be made available online. The decision to start the press was founded on the understanding that opportunities to release shorter texts, particularly those that may not meet the criteria of standard full-length collections, are restricted by financial realities and limited interest on the part of the more-established publishers. The ambition is to provide a venue for poets so that their work may be made widely available to a community of readers and poets here in Ireland and abroad.
The press recently released their first three publications (and have others forthcoming);

'The Server Room' - Conor O'Callaghan
'Rain' - Maurice Scully
'Zero at the Bone' - David Wheatley

As evident in their first publications, the press welcomes work from diverse poetic backgrounds and its editorial policy hopes to blur any reductive divisions between 'traditional' or 'experimental' poetry. Submission Guidelines can be found here
All enquiries and submissions may be made to the editor, Kenneth Keating, at smithereens.press@gmail.com.
