Telltale Press is a poets’ publishing collective. That means we (the members) share all the tasks, responsibilities, decisions and successes of the press: we are poets who have seized the means of poetry production. It’s a team effort.

Read more about our ethos & our members here (please read this before you ask us about joining the press – thanks!)

Our patron is Poet Laureate Dame Carol Ann Duffy – we’re very proud of her solidarity for what we’re doing.

We hope you will support us by coming to one of our readings, talking us up to your friends and of course, buying our pamphlets, which are all £4how reasonable is that?

If you’re not already on our mailing list, please sign up so we can let you know about our events and forthcoming publications. Emails are only sent occasionally, you won’t be inundated. Thanks!
