Boatwhistle was established in London in 2015, with the aim of publishing singular books for singular readers. We uphold impeccable production and editorial standards and make our books available to customers worldwide at scandalously generous prices. We are not exactly non-profit, but we are so unlikely to ever make a profit that we might as well be. In other words, we are in it for the sheer love of it.
We publish no more than two books a year, and what we do publish will generally have come about from our own impetus. Snoopin' around, sniffin' out the good stuff. Therefore the chances of our publishing an unsolicited manuscript submission are very slim indeed. Nonetheless, we still harbour a naïve hope of discovering a modern-day Emily Brontë. And we have experienced the bitter taste of rejection. Many times. So we will at least take a respectful look at anything that is sent to us, and will give you a personal response in a timely manner. Please get in touch via the contact page of this website. Note that although all of our books to date have been broadly within the realm of poetry, we are open to publishing in other genres.
