'Oke Romanõ ĉeriklõ!
Dikása kâlén!'

‘Behold a wagtail!
We shall see Gypsies!’

Wagtail is the exciting new Butcher's Dog publishing imprint, established thanks to the esteemed European Roma Institute for Arts and Culture (ERIAC).  

In Autumn 2020, our Managing Editor Jo Clement invited female-identifying Roma to join an inclusive reading and writing community.  The group accessed free and high-quality writing tuition to express intra-ethnic identity, culture, history, and heritage from around the globe.

The Roma Women's Poetry Anthology, our first publication, is due late Autumn 2021. It celebrates marginalised Gypsy, Roma, and Traveller (GRT) voices and presents a selection of women writers excluded by mainstream publishers.
