IRON Press was set up in the North-East by the writer Peter Mortimer in the long-lost days of 1973. In almost half a century it has produced a truly eclectic body of work, championing the most interesting writers from its own region, the rest of the country, and sometimes world-wide. IRON is also the country’s leading independent publisher of haiku, and published the first two books by David Almond in his pre-Skellig days. Every two years in its small coastal village home of Cullercoats, it runs the wonderfully unpredictable IRON Press Words & Music Festival. The fourth festival, IRON Proof, is planned for 2019..
