Shoe Music Press

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.
