Five Oaks Press

We like poetry that sings but that is grounded in meaning. Ideas AND things. All in one humble bundle of a poem. Not that contemporary poetry of dissonance, "the skittery poem," and not those old, over-narrated poem anvils. Something in the middle.

Furniture Press Books

Furniture Press is a publisher of strangely poetical texts and ephemera, all which play at (but are not limited to) intertextuality and appropriation. Some want to call it poetry, but poetry can express many differing, sometimes conflicting and contradictory concepts. This is what we thrive on: the ambiguation of art and its likenesses. Our poetics follows this process closely, and we look for similar aesthetics in the writers we choose to publish and promote.

FutureCycle Press

We strive to preserve for posterity poetry from imaginative, highly skilled contemporary poets, whether well-known or emerging. We abhor the myopic, self-absorbed, and sloppy, but otherwise we are eclectic in our tastes. We award the FutureCycle Poetry Book Prize and honorarium for the best full-length book the press publishes each year. Our Selected Poems series resurrects out-of-print work by accomplished poets. The Good Works projects, irregularly published anthologies, benefit charity; these projects afford poets a place to submit individual works without fee.
