Hazel Press’ First Day

Today is the first day that Hazel Press has had walls. Just beyond the press desk, we are currently looking out at a muntjac deer that has been commuting back and forth all day to nibble, and listen intensely for any sound that is not its’ own.

It is the first day of June, a time to look up at the mostly uninterrupted sky: only blue, white and greys, moving to the west. Today has been all about metadata, timelines and ticking things and trims.

This autumn, Hazel will be publishing four pamphlets, an essay by Sean Borodale, poetry by Anna Selby and Ella Duffy, and a long poem by Matthew Hollis.


Stay tuned for more information!

All about Hazel

The Latin name for hazel is Corylus avellana. As Max Adams writes in his book The Wisdom of Trees, “The Hazel may be small, but it is the champion of the woods: the most useful of all trees. The Anglo-Saxons believed it to be their own special tree of knowledge. From it we learn that strength may come from small packages; that flexibility is a strength in itself, and that self-renewal is the art of survival.” Not only that, the hazel is native to the UK and many other countries around the globe.
