Original image by Gillian BeatonIt’s an independent poetry press originated and run by Helena Nelson and based in Fife, Scotland. It has been running since 2005, though the run is now more like a gentle walk, which will soon be a crawl. That is to say we are winding down.

HappenStance has no public funding. It does, however, have a group of readers.

All HappenStance items can be ordered from the online shop, where you can also find more information about each publication.
