Rockingham Press was set up in 1991 by David Perman (whose middle name is Rockingham) to champion new and neglected poets and also poetry from the Middle East in translation. Since then Rockingham has published each year on average four paperback poetry collections (usually including a first collection) and one or two pamphlets, including the Ware Poets Open Competition anthology.  Middle East titles have included Modern Turkish Poetry, a Poetry Book Society Recommendation, Modern Persian Poetry, and works by Feyyaz Kayacan Fergar, Oktay Rifat and Mahmud Kianush.

Rockingham Press is based in Ware and publishes local history relating to East Hertfordshire, and some volumes of biography.

Rockingham Press is a member of Inpress Books, which represents us and distributes titles through NBN International Ltd in Plymouth.

Rockingham Press does not receive any funding from the Arts Council or any other public body.
