Mariscat Press

Welcome to the website of Mariscat Press and Hamish Whyte. Here you’ll find information about Hamish Whyte as a poet, including details of and samples from his books, as well as samples of Mariscat Press publications and ordering and submission guides.

As a poet Hamish is known for his highly individual style, at once immediate and unexpected; Mariscat is now one of the longest running self-funded small presses in Scotland, known for its tastefully designed publications and a quality backlist which includes work by figures such as Douglas Dunn, Diana Hendry and Brian McCabe, as well as numerous publications by Edwin Morgan, Whyte’s friend for over 30 years.
