ABOUT BLUE DIODE

We are a publisher of quality books, mainly poetry, based in Leith, Scotland. Our first publication was 'Spark', a poetry anthology containing poems written in response to the novels of Muriel Spark. Since then, we have published several individual poetry collections, with more to come. One of those,  Juana Adcock's 'Split', was the Poetry Book Society Choice for winter 2019. This book, along with Tessa Berring's 'Bitten Hair', was highly commended in the Forward Prizes.

 

We are not currently open for submissions. We hope to accept submissions of full poetry collections again around the end of 2021/beginning of 2022. Until then, please take a look at the site and the books for sale, and perhaps buy one (or more!). Your support of independent publishing will be much appreciated.
