Hiraeth Press is an imprint of Homebound Publications that has been publishing since 2006 with a focus on environmental literature.We primarily publish nonfiction books exploring themes of conservation, rewilding, place-based narratives, natural history, and contemplative ecology. We accept submissions that range from meditations on nature to well-researched yet accessible nonfiction titles. Broadly, we are interested in books that bring together science and poetry, bridging the gap between knowing the earth and knowing the self.
Poetry is the language of the earth. This includes not only poems but the slow flap of a heron’s wings across the sky, the lightning of its beak hunting in the shallow water; autumn leaves and the smooth course of water over stones and gravel. These, as much as poems, communicate the being and meaning of things. We strive to produce works of poetry, whether they are actual poems or nonfiction. We are passionate about poetry as a means of returning the human voice to the chorus of the wild.
Currently closed to submissions. Working on backlog.
