History of the Press

New Binary Press was founded in 2012 by James O’Sullivan. The imprint’s first publication was Graham Allen’s born digital poem, Holes. This was shortly followed by The New Binary Press Anthology of Poetry: Volume I. The collection featured works from a selection of established and emerging authors from across the globe. New Binary Press was launched at the City Library, Cork, on April 5th, 2013. Leanne O’Sullivan, one of Ireland’s most accomplished poets, was guest reader on the night. Four days later, New Binary Press held a Dublin launch and poetry reading at The Teachers’ Club, Parnell Square.

New Binary Press also maintains an open access journal, The Weary Blues. By supporting New Binary Press, you can help us maintain such projects.
