About Us

Liquid Amber Press

Liquid Amber Press is a new kid on the publishing block. She is focusing on fine publishing of poetry especially as it intersects with visual art. And she’s keen to support the experience of poetry in readings and exhibitions. Join her Christmas card list (subscribe) to be part of her family and friends.
