Abstract / Summary

Guillemot Press is an award-winning publishing company founded by Luke Thompson in 2016. By 2021 we will have published approximately 50 titles featuring some of the most exciting poets writing in English today, from experimental debut writers to international prize-winners.

The press is thematically defined, rather than formally or stylistically, and has a special focus on the materiality of book-making, using a range of print techniques, including letterpress, litho and digital, and a range of binding and paper stock choices. We won the Michael Marks Publishers Award for this work in December 2018 and our books have won awards for their design and illustration.

As well as publishing books, Guillemot Press has a website that includes features and interviews. We have curated numerous exhibitions and readings, from Penzance to the Shetlands, taking in Bristol, London, Liverpool, Edinburgh, Orkney, and many other locations across the UK, and we co-curate the Bodmin Moor Poetry Festival.
