Whisky & Beards is a poetry publishing company that believes authors should be treated fairly.
Much of the publishing industry is supported by a few major success supporting unnecessary waste. Traditionally, publishers have to order huge print runs and hope that they can sell...read more their stock. With the advent of print-on-demand, publishers can be more flexible and pass the extra profits directly to their writers.
Our approach was modelled on the music industry and their failure to adequately adapt to the digital age, and just as smaller labels and independent artists experiment with Pay-What-You-Feel, we think it's about time we tried the same.
In our time, we've built up a small catalogue of projects we've released for free. Payhip allows us to continue to make these projects while also allowing us the opportunity to expand our range.
