About Us

Founded in 2015 by Michelle Tudor and Peter Barnfather, the press runs alongside our other project: wildness, an online literary journal.

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

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, you can do so through Gardners [UK + worldwide].

To discuss further, you can email us.
