About

valparaiso

Valparaiso books is a site on which poetry, prose and pictures will be published, perhaps even a few photographs.  The one above is of Valparaiso in Chile, the city from which we have borrowed our name!

Why Valparaiso?

The Chilean poet, Pablo Neruda, owned a house, La Sebastiana, in Valparaiso.  The city is a vibrant combination of the traditional working harbour and a magnet for poets, writers and artists of all descriptions.  This balance of eclecticism and an interest in the real lives of people is what we will strive for with Valaparaiso.

We hope you enjoy the journey!
