Torque Press


We are happy to be able to announce the re-launch of Torque Press, a small press dedicated to publishing contemporary poetry, which is supported by the University of Southampton.

The press is also very pleased to announce the launch of a new book:

Caroline Bergvall, Cropper, ISBN: 978-1-906851-01-9, pp. 15.
£7, plus 50p p&p.

The book is beautifully designed and constructed by Marit Münzburg, and in two articulating sections considers the experience of multilingualism, and the way bodies and language(s) interact across their many borders.
