Six Herons is a small independent press dedicated to supporting the preservation and dissemination of poetry. We publish to spread our love of language and build bridges between hearts and minds through storytelling.
A time-honored form of self-inquiry, poetry begins as a conversation with ourselves before the page lifts the veils of perception. Language becomes a snapshot, ephemeral yet forever subject to interpretation.
As curiosity guides us toward a better understanding of what it means to be a human in the world, life happens, one jolt of the compass, one poem at a time.
The final instalment of Nuno Ricardo’s poetic trilogy, Drawings is an invitation to embrace the unknown with hope, surrendering expectations to better consider the possible.
Drawing curiosity from the relentless race for attention and validation playing out daily in pixels and data packets, Sketches examines our shared humanness as it tumbles down the internet rabbit hole.
Each poem parses the odds of forging deep, meaningful bonds through interfaces and filters. When our every gesture panders to the online cult of appearances and a myriad voices are chasing the spotlight, poetry offers a different reflection.
A heartfelt and unflinching attempt to reconcile our inner and outer worlds, Nuno Ricardo's second book is a timely plea for honest connectedness.
Can you salvage your heart after the loss of romantic love and rewrite yourself when all familiar landmarks have vanished?
This debut collection by Nuno Ricardo is an impassioned tribute to the resilience of the human spirit and a daring celebration of life. With candor and courage, Outlines articulates emotions that often defy language and takes us on a universal journey of self-awareness.
Unredacted and unapologetic, each poem is an intimate glimpse into what it takes to overcome loss and maintain the ability to love.
