Clochoderick Press was started by
Round Table Writers, a constituted group of volunteers
passionate about literature, in order to create a platform for those who possess
literary excellence, but who are otherwise under-represented. We aim to provide platforms such as publication of individual works (collections of poetry or novels etc), showcasing individual pieces of works through our literary journal, Laldy,
running annual competitions judged by established names, and offering
workshops by veteran authors in order to promote high quality
writing. Our overall mission is to run Clochoderick as a non
profit service and to use any income to
invest in new literary talent.

Why the name "Clochoderick?"
The press is named after the Clochoderick Stone
in Renfrewshire, not just a wonder in itself, but also previously
frequented by an older free thinking Paisley literary group named
"The Troglodytes," who would go to the stone for an annual day out
(as you can see from the background image).
