Drunk Muse Press was founded in late 2020 by Neil Young and Hugh McMillan, based in Scotland, and Jessamine O' Connor in Ireland. Our purpose is to champion poetry that insists on wider attention . . . by poets with a compelling way of expressing it. The first Drunk Muse publications will be published in spring/summer of 2021. Watch this space for details.
In the Press
For lovers of Scottish poetry, George Gunn is unmissable - a resolutely non-conformist voice casting his eye high and low from the ramparts of his native Caithness.
Passionate, direct and rich with humanity in the face of brute force and dehumanisation, Dareen Tatour recalls her experience from arrest through imprisonment for the 'crime' of writing a defiant poetry.
Harry Smart is one of the great maverick voices of contemporary poetry on these islands. This new collection with Drunk Muse will be the first since his Faber volumes of the 1990s, and demonstrates why he is still searingly relevant.
