Wet Cement Press publishes small handheld books of fiction, poetry and hybrid genius. Our tastes in literature run toward the lyrical and spontaneous, the raw and unsmooth.
Our goal has always been to publish the very best poetry and prose we can find in carefully-edited, hand-trimmed & hand-tied chapbooks; to work in close collaboration with authors through the production process; and to present a wide aesthetic range from both established and emerging writers.
Visit our website to read sample work from our authors. We're interested in your work, not your reputation, and have a special fondness for odd ducks. Reading periods are typically six weeks long for each of our open series. Especially interested in new & emerging voices from the widest possible range of experience.
Milk and Cake Press seeks to publish an eclectic collection of poems. We love language, the sounds it creates, and the power of it to name and shape. We welcome work from a diverse range of poets, including women, people of color, and those who identify as LGBTQIA. We will make inclusive decisions about the poets and poems we publish.
Game Over Books is a small publisher run collaboratively by a group of nerdy artists. Our goal is to amplify diverse voices in writing and bring high-quality publications to all people.

Wendy’s Subway is a nonprofit reading room, writing space, and independent publisher located in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Since 2013, Wendy’s Subway has provided an open and versatile platform for expanding modes of reading, writing, and publishing together. They are seeking innovative, hybrid, and cross-genre work that charts new possibilities and expressions of form, including poetry, artists’ writing, and cross-genre works.
We love a strong sense of line and imagery. We love narratives and a strongly-linked series. When we read, we are drawn to poems about nature and science imagery, persona and historical poems, magical realism, and poems about or by minorities in all sense of the word. If the poems don’t reveal a strong voice, we are not interested. As far as form, we prefer free verse but love a few form poems thrown in. Prose poems and poems a few pages long are also interesting to our ears. For flash, it is not much different.
