Welcome to Graft Poetry Publishing

Graft Poetry's philosophy is simple: the very best in contemporary poetry at affordable prices. The poets to be published, in the first instance were at least, ones who had not previously published poetry collections but who seem to us to deserve to be better known in book form.

The first book we brought out in 2008 was the hugely successful and critically acclaimed Without a dog by Julia Deakin, and we are now pleased to announce Julia's second collection: Eleven Wonders. Other collections include works from Andy Boobier, Nicholas Bielby, Adam Strickson, Chris Hardy, Chris Bridge, Jefferson Holdridge and Pauline Kirk.


To celebrate our 10th birthday, there will be a reading at Ilkley Manor House 24th June 2018 14.00-16.00. Readers will include Jefferson Holdridge, Chris Bridge, Pauline Kirk, Nicholas Bielbly and Andy Boobier - all reading from their latest Graft collections. So come along and celebrate with us. Only 3 on the door (includes a FREE GLASS OF WINE).


Time Traveller by Pauline Kirk

A new book by Pauline Kirk is always a special event and this is no exception. We travel in space as well as time in this collection which has a rich sense of place as well as history. This poet is a delightful travelling companion. Climb aboard!
