Central Square Press, LLC, is a small, independent, literary press that publishes thought-provoking and high quality poetry. We strive to publish poetry that does not cater to the academic establishment but is part of the witness continuum; work that bears witness to the struggle and residual prejudices that plagued our communities, with emphasis on emerging poets.

We publish manuscripts that reflect those from African-American, Caribbean and Caribbean-American communities.

My goal for Sheila-Na-Gig online is to continue to support the work of both established and emerging poets in a crisp, uncluttered space. Poets entering our quarterly poetry contests or full-length manuscript contest should familiarize themselves with our aesthetic.

Sheila-Na-Gig online publishes well-crafted free verse poetry. We especially seek poems with excellent imagery and a strong sense of voice.
