About Us

Welcome to dancingsisters.co.uk.

Dancing Sisters is a recently established small press based in Hull in the East Riding of Yorkshire. We mainly publish pamphlet-style publications for niche markets. Our very first pamphlet, published on 1 May 2015, was an Index for Jean Hartley's Philip Larkin, the Marvell Press and Me. The Index, compiled by James L. Orwin, is a companion publication for the 1989 (hardcover) Carcanet edition of Jean Hartley's memoir.

Our second publication, published on 1 July 2015, is There Are Worse Things I Could Do Than Write A Poem Or Two, a chapbook of two Dean Wilson poems: 'Fourth Best Poet In Hull' and 'Away with the Fairies', which are among the most popular in Dean's live performances.

Our third publication, published on 1 September 2015, is a children's Christmas story in verse, The First Boxing Day, by James L. Orwin.

Our fourth pamphlet publication is Heart on the Water, a slim volume of twenty-one poems by Mary McCollum, which was published on 1 March 2016 (see our Publications section, below).

On 22 May (to coincide with Hull's 12 month tenure as UK City of Culture) we published HULL 2017: 2,017 facts about Hull and people associated with the city, by James L. Orwin, which was made available as an eBook via Amazon on 1 January 2017. The paperback version was published on 1 May 2017.

Our most recent pamphlet is Box-free Zone the debut collection of twenty-four poems by Frank Newsum, which was published in a signed, limited-edition of 125, on 22 May 2017.

In conjunction with our signed limited-edition pamphlets, we will also be producing eBook version of all our titles, plus some titles that will only be available in eBook format.
