Editorial Focus

Shoe Music Press publishes poetry chapbooks, in addition to three magazines: Mastodon Dentist, Nefarious Ballerina, and Penny Ante Feud. We admire accessible but unusual poetry that speaks to the human experience. We're not so much into political agendas or propagating social myths, like when a piece of writing assumes we think a certain way when we do not (e.g. global warming). We're interested in personal viewpoints mainly, poetry that tells a story in a lyrical and fascinating way. 

Tips From the Editor

The best way to grab our attention is to send us a submission to one or more of our magazines. Then, perhaps, if we're particularly drawn to your work a book may be discussed. Unsolicited manuscripts can be considered but we may feel the need to charge you a modest reading fee.
