The Olympia Press London
The Olympia Press London is for writers seeking to achieve. Our World is flooded with mediocrity and bad vanity writing. The Olympia Press is here to help a whole new world of writers who love their Art, thus achieving real literary merit. This is publishing at its finest, following the example of the powerful dynasty of the Girodias’ who began The Olympia Press in Paris seventy years ago. The Girodias’s discovered the finest writers of the twentieth century, Miller, Nabakov, Durrell, Reage, Genet, Burrows, Selby , Leduc - and many others, thus changing the World of Ideas forever. Not for nothing is the Olympia Press rightly famous for being, to quote the The New York Times, “A literary enterprise that has profoundly influenced contemporary writing and culture” . Be part of it.

Olympia Press brings you a new idea. An ever-rolling anthology of poetry. As you see, all kinds of poems from all kinds of poets make up the collection which is accessible through the button above, an anthology augmented at intervals with new work by our creative visitors and authors. We're compiling book 3, so if you are a poet who would like to join in the building of our next anthology, please send your poem by email to:: email@example.com
We also aim to create a collection of today's Haikus, a rolling anthology just like the one above. You'll know that the Haiku was originally a Japanese form of verse, aiming to encapsulate a single range of thoughts within a rhyme scheme of 17 syllables in the order five, seven, five. 'The haiku (俳句, haiku ), derived from haikai consists of a short poem of three lines of five, seven, five, berries respectively.'
For our purposes we use a modern form which maintains the 17 syllables, but in any form that makes poetic sense. It's not only pleasurable to completely encapsulate a passing thought, emotion, idea (and maybe mean it to be for someone you know) but also personally positive - and you can read it on the screen via bookstreet and be assured of an audience online. Now write - then tell them about it!
