Named after the “American haiku” co-invented by Jack Collom and Robert Kelly, and inspired by the sense of “poetry as correspondence”—between persons, planets, symbols, etc.—The Lune's first editions were unbound chapbooks housed in pre-stamped envelopes and sold at bookstores along the Front Range.

With an emphasis on contemplative and collaborative poetics, our catalogue is shaped around the sense of wonder, delight in experiment, and concern for humanity reflected in the work of contemporary poets.

Representative Authors: 

Reed Bye, Jack Collom, Laura Cesarco Eglin, Anne Waldman, Ella Longpre, Maureen Seaton, Joanna Ruocco, David Mutschlecner, Jaime Robles, Jonathan Simkins, &c.

Ananke Press is a small, independent press in New York City with the focus on smart speculative fiction. We welcome odd and unexpected stories, masterfully crafted with the love of language in mind. Ananke Press is a member of IBPA; we offer a traditional contract.

Ananke Press is a selective press. Number of previous publications is unimportant; what matters is the quality of the work. We like intelligent and unconventional projects. If you are finding it difficult to fit your novel on a prescribed shelf, it might find a home with us.

In 2020 we moved from Hilo, Hawai'i to Ithaca, New York. We are seeking poetry and hybrid prose/poetry collections and collections of short stories or lyric essays. I’d like to see more poems that gather in with “long arms,” to borrow Ellen Bass’ description of Frank X. Gaspar’s work, and more somatic awareness, like Ire’ne Lara Silva’s Blood Sugar Canto.

Please submit only in response to a call for submissions. Please use Submittable.

Representative Authors: 

Jessamyn Smyth, The Inugami Mochi. Ire'ne Lara Silva, Blood Sugar Canto. Jendi Reiter, Two Natures. Stefan Kiesbye, The Staked Plains. Ruth Thompson, Woman With Crows. Don Mitchell, A Red Woman Was Crying.

Cuidono Press publishes fiction, historical fiction, and history. We look for narratives that take history and culture seriously, whether in service to a great story or in laying out thought-provoking argument. While we are based in Brooklyn, our non-historical fiction so far has all been set outside the United States—that is not at all a requirement of the projects we consider, but reflects the types of themes and explorations that intrigue us.

The best way to appeal to any of our editors is to move them in a certain way. Your horror should terrify; your fantasy amaze; your erotica arouse; your political lit intrigue.
