Llais Newydd Poetry Press

A New Voice For A New Generation of Writers

Mission Statement

Llais Newydd Poetry Press exists for the following reasons:

To publish debut collections by new writers.

Llais Newydd will publish debut and follow up collections by previously unpublished writers. We aim to bring new voices into the literary world that would otherwise not get a chance to be heard.

To create a space for marginalised voices.

For too long there has not been a specific home for writers from marginalised groups and Llais Newydd seeks to remedy this by providing a press that prioritises those voices. Our first four publications will be voices from the Autistic and LGBT communities and Women. We can do this by not having open submissions, but from hand picking from the queer and neurodivergent poets and writers that we know to be waiting to be heard.

To further the Welsh language.

Llais Newydd is committed to not only publishing books in Welsh, but also to translating their publications into Welsh and producing poetry anthologies as a way to raise money for Welsh charities that look after people from marginalised groups.

To value artists

Llais Newydd are utterly committed to paying their artists, and auxiliary workers, whether that be for proofreading, cover art or editing. No job is undervalued by us and we will always pay for services.
