The Emma Press is an independent poetry publisher run by Emma Wright and dedicated to producing beautiful, thought-provoking books. It publishes themed anthologies, single-author pamphlets and books for children, all printed on beautiful paper and often illustrated.
Emma will be in residence at 1000 Trades throughout the Saturday and Sunday of the Jewellery Quarter Festival – 23 and 24 July.
“I’m looking forward to bringing the Emma Press to 1000 Trades. I’ll be setting up a mini version of my production line, so I can show people how books are made. Visitors can see how I choose poems to publish, edit them, illustrate them, choose the paper and design the covers. I’ll also invite people to illustrate poems themselves.”
