Calder Wood Press
It was established on a very small scale in 1998, and rapidly expanded from 2007. Its editor, Colin Will, prefers to publish people that he knows personally, and whose work he thinks deserves wider recognition. Each book is unique, and is edited and designed through close co-operation between author and publisher. It’s a relationship, not a product.
Jayne Wilding’s sky blue notebook from the Pyrenees was joint runner-up for the 2009 Callum Macdonald Memorial Award.
