Data Protection

You will have noticed that new legislation on data protection is to be implemented tomorrow (25 May) and we have all been receiving, ironically, far more emails than we would have wished from various email lists we are subscribed to asking us if we wish to remain subscribed. The data policy of Rack Press has always been, long before the new legislation was conceived, not to share data in any circumstances with advertisers, researchers, other companies and so on. All we "hold" is a list of email addresses for friends of Rack Press whom we intend to invite to the next launch. If you have received an email from us in the past year (we do not issue bulletins or regular mailings, only very occasional invitations to our book launches) this will be because you have in the past indicated an interest in Rack Press. We always make clear that all recipients can unsubscribe with immediate effect and this will remain our policy. You will see this when, if currently on our address list, you next receive an invitation. If you cannot wait for this and would like to unsubscribe NOW please email rackpress@ nicholasmurray.co.uk with the single word "unsubscribe" and you will vanish instantly.

Thank you for your patience.

A Special Offer on Our New Titles


We currently have a special introductory offer on our individually signed sets of the two new titles, 
Ling Di Long by Samantha Wynne-Rhydderch and 
Finishing Lines by Ian Harrow. 

These are two excellent pamphlets and each author has individually signed and numbered their pamphlet, making an attractive and unique package.  
We are offering sets at £8 post free (see drop down menu on this page) and we dispatch immediately.
It is still possible to order the individual titles separately and if you are in London you can buy them at the London Review Bookshop near the British Museum and, since we are distributed by Central Books, they can be ordered through all bookshops nationwide.

Submission Window Closing 27th November

At the end of September we announced that we were open again to submissions, having been closed for a few months. During the last two months we have been inundated with submissions which in one sense is very encouraging as it is a sign that a lot of poetry (and we would say, from the overall quality of submissions, good poetry) is being written and also we are pleased that people have chosen us.  On the other hand, it is disappointing for poets to find that their excellent work is being turned down for no better reason than that we are “full up”.

So we have decided to close to submissions again from Monday 27th November until further notice.

When we are ready again to consider submissions we will announce it here and on our Twitter account. What we said in our earlier post about the desirability of opening oneself to the unexpected from time to time still stands and we look forward to being able to do so again in the future.

Thank you to all those who have submitted and those of you who have not yet had a response from us will receive it by 27th November.
