Bad Betty Press



Judges’ Comments

The judges unanimously praised Bad Betty Press for the wide range of topics addressed and sensibilities encompassed. Yet the invisible and the unspeakable take centre stage: shifting from the more intimate to political issues. These pamphlets drag the reader into a live journey, revealing an editorial attention to formally daring poets and poems and an ability to bring to the fore multi-layered and skilful voices. This is complemented by the press’s aesthetically recognisable cover style, marked by the consistency of white on black yet personalised cover designs.
