Taking their name from the secret gay slang Polari, popular in the mid-1900s, Polari Press is an independent publishing house that seeks out hidden voices and helps them be heard. Although Polari was spoken predominantly by gay and bisexual men, the nature of clandestine meetings of the era when homosexuality was still criminalised, brought together people from all walks of life who all had an influence on the language. Cockney, Romany, and Italian languages mixed with the colloquialisms of thespians, circus performers, wrestlers, sailors, and wider criminal communities to create a slang to express their sexuality secretly and safely. Inspired by these origins, they publish queer and marginalised voices, to share a diverse range of queer perspectives.
Smokestack Books aims to keep open a space for what is left of the radical poetic tradition in the twenty-first century. Smokestack champions poets who are unfashionable, radical, left-field and working a long way from the metropolitan centres of cultural authority; believes that poetry is a part of and not apart from society; argues that if poetry does not belong to everyone it is not poetry.
