  • Oxford Brookes Poetry Centre is home to ignitionpress 

    Established in 2017, ignitionpress is a poetry pamphlet press with an international outlook which publishes original, arresting poetry from emerging poets. In the future, we plan to work with established poets who are developing interim or special projects.
