Free Verse: the Poetry Book Fair

Hercules Editions were delighted to take part in Free Verse: the Poetry Book Fair 2014 on 6th September. The fair is now in its fourth year and has become an essential event in the poetry calendar. The venue for this year’s gathering was Conway Hall, the home of radical freethinking in Britain, and therefore the perfect location to host over 60 independent presses and poetry organisations. The room was buzzing all day, full to capacity with poets, readers and fellow publishers (including Penned in the Margins and Miel, two of our favourites), and we were very happy to be sharing a table with Annexe, who are producing some lovely pamphlets from great new writers. It was a landmark for us – our first book fair, so it was great to be able to say hello to some of our readers and make new connections.
