Clutag Press

The Clutag Press was established in 2000 as a venture by Andrew McNeillie to issue Clutag Poetry Leaflets, by established and emerging poets.[1] In 2004, it received backing from The Christopher Tower Fund (in association with Christ Church, Oxford, Oxford University).[1] As a result, it began issuing more substantial poetry pamphlets, full-length books, and CD sound recordings.[1]
