Diamond Twig was a small non-profit making press, launched in 1992 by Ellen Phethean and the late Julia Darling, to promote poetry and short story writing in innovative, exciting ways and to develop and encourage audiences too. Our policy was to publish and promote new writing by women in the North of England.
At the end of 1998, Diamond Twig Press closed down for good, with thanks to all our poets, writers, readers, customers, The Poetry Virgins, Cornwell Internet and financial supporters over the years, including New Writing North and Arts Council.
The books published by Diamond Twig in its lifetime are archived here, but are no longer for sale through this website. Follow the links to read about our books.
