About Us

Founded in 2015 by Michelle Tudor and Peter Barnfather, the press runs alongside our two other projects: wildness (an online literary journal) and Fives (a mini-interview series).

We were honoured to be featured in Entropy’s Best of 2017: Presses, Magazines, Publishers & Journals list for the press (and wildness), as well as being featured in Poets & WritersSmall Press Points. We also answered questions on the history (and future) of the press at Entropy.

You can find Platypus Press listed on Duotrope and Poets & Writers.

If you represent a bookstore, university or library, and would like to order our books, please email us to discuss further.
