The Mum Poem Press

The Mum Poem Press is a poetry publishing venture focusing on work that explores all aspects of motherhood.

We support and connect parents who write, or would like to try writing poetry through our Mum Poet Club; encouraging mums to write as a way to express, process and share experiences.

We publish zines featuring poems written by members of The Mum Poet Club and host a regular open mic night and other events.

Everyone is welcome and you don’t need any previous experience to join our free and friendly writing community.

 Join the Mum Poet Club now.

In May 2021, we published Songs of Love and Strength, our first full length anthology of poetry about motherhood written by a mixture of published and previously unpublished poets.

Profits from sales of the anthology will be donated to the PANDAS Foundation, who aim to make sure no parent, family or carer feels alone.

It sounds dramatic but I genuinely believe that poetry and writing saved me from the temporary madness of early motherhood. I wrote myself out of it.
