Rockingham Press was set up in 1991 to champion new and neglected poets and also Middle East poetry in translation. Since then Rockingham has published each year on average four paperback collections (always including a first collection) and one or two pamphlets. Its Middle East titles have included Modern Turkish Poetry (a Poetry Book Society recommendation), Modern Persian Poetry, and works by Feyyaz Kayacan Fergar and Oktay Rifat.
Poets published by Rockingham include Judi Benson, Anne-Marie Fyfe, Adèle Geras, John Greening, James Kirkup, Jane Kirwan, Lotte Kramer, William Oxley and Edward Storey. Rockingham has been a supporter of the Ware Poets in Hertfordshire since its beginning, and has published the twelve Ware Poets Competition anthologies.
