Bloodaxe Books


Bloodaxe Books has revolutionised poetry publishing in Britain over four decades. Internationally renowned for quality in literature and excellence in book design, its authors and books have won virtually every major literary award given to poetry, from the T.S. Eliot Prize and Pulitzer to the Nobel Prize. And books like the Staying Alive anthology series have broken new ground by opening up contemporary poetry to many thousands of new readers. Grant support from Arts Council England makes it possible for Bloodaxe to publish 20 to 30 new titles a year by a bold and diverse range of new and established writers from Britain, Ireland, America and many other countries, including poetry in translation, and proportionally more collections by women poets than any other British imprint. Bloodaxe Books was founded in Newcastle by Neil Astley in 1978. It became a non-profit limited company in 1982. Based in offices on Newcastle’s Quayside for many years and later behind the station, Bloodaxe has operated from Northumberland since 1997, and in Hexham since 2014. Its UK distribution is handled by Grantham Book Services (GBS) and UK book trade marketing by PGUK.
