Silhouette Press is a not-for-profit publisher that aims to improve access to the publishing industry.

We publish poetry books and run writing and publishing workshops and creative projects. Our key interest is working with individuals from under-represented communities or who are socially-excluded, and have limited access or support to get involved with creative writing, publish their work, or to develop publishing industry skills.

We also offer networking support and publishing work experience opportunities for creative people  (qualified and unqualified) who are unable to find employment in creative industries.

We currently operate between Coventry (City of Culture 2021) and London; cross-promoting our authors, projects and events between the two cities in order to embed and promote a sustainable creative culture in the West Midlands and offer wider opportunities for writers, readers and audiences.
