We have a PATREON page.
Patreon enables a regular pledge of your choice to artists, writers, musicians etc in return for special rewards & exclusives. Patreon's platform allows working class artists like those behind Hesterglock Press to receive a steady revenue stream directly in contact with our readers. By signing-up and supporting us working in this way, you'll be helping to sustain an ongoing commitment to connecting with others, publishing radical & challenging books, collaborating with other artists and writers on projects that take-risks & don't / won't make a million, but may make a difference or a change.
Hesterglock Press is co-run by Sarer Scotthorne & Bob Modem // Paul Hawkins. We started in 2013, publishing themed, pocket-sized poetry anthologies under the name of Boscombe Revolution, as well as hand-made pamphlets of flash fiction and poetry. In 2016 we began to use print-on-demand services, which enabled us to start publishing books (without any start-up capital or other middle-class finance model(s)), publishing mainly experimental/innovative poetry.
In the last five years, as at June 2019, Hesterglock Press / Prote(s)xt have published:
We have 6 more books & an anthology scheduled to publish over the next 12 months.
Canadian editor, publisher & prolific poet Rob Mclennan recently asked Paul to describe his small press writing day. You can read it here
We've organised many readings, book launches, literature events and co-curate (along with Sad Press & Moot Press) ANATHEMA, a monthly series of experimental poetry/writing events in Bristol and further afield.
Please support our publishing in return for free things like books, exclusive artworks and digital goodies.
