About

Welcome to dancingsisters.co.uk.

Dancing Sisters (established in 2015) is a 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 was 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).

In 2017 (to coincide with Hull's 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 (now discontinued) via Amazon on 1 January 2017. The paperback version was published on 1 May 2017.

We published Box-free Zone the debut collection of twenty-four poems by Frank Newsum, in a signed, limited-edition of 125, on 22 May 2017.

Our most recent publication is living by the law of light the first full collection (52 poems) by Mary McCollum, which was published in a signed, limited-edition of 125, on 4 November 2019.
