CC: Death Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development (2022) VEER2


Announcing a new engagement for Veer, with the Imprint Veer2. Our aim is to publish poetry that goes beyond boundaries; indeed our emphasis will be on non-normative and challenging work. We want to have a speedy turn-around publishing schedule, often with younger writers at the forefront.

Veer2, Veer squared, the veering of Veer, a veneer laid across a Veer. These works are put out by members of the collective who feel passionately that that work is vitally necessary. No programme though, anti-programmatic, nothing but a shared exploration, in timbres of excitement, of what might be the same and what might be new.

Veer2's first series editor is Robert Kiely, who has curated his own series of Veer2 publications. He will be followed by other series editors who will bring their own sense of Veer2 to Veer and to the world.

Veer Books | Veer2 are William Rowe, Ulli Freer, Stephen Mooney, Aodán McCardle, Piers Hugill, Adrian Clarke, Carol Watts and Robert Kiely.

Veer Books will continue in its own right, publishing significant reprints as well as the occasional new text.
