New Poetry Announced

Darkly Bright Press is a small, independent book publisher with a focus on Uncommon Literature & Liturgical Christianity. Inspired by Welsh writer Arthur Machen’s emphasis on ecstasy in literature, our mission is to curate and spotlight such works by past voices and provide a platform for new authors, poets and artists.

Book Announcement

Later in 2020, Darkly Bright Press will publish Ordinary Time, the first collection of poetry by Phillip Neal Tippin. For an early look at this poet’s work, please read this selection.

Also, this week, we posted several poems from Forged in the Heart (published October 2019) by Claire Brandenburg. The poet has supplied new commentary.
