Dark Particle specializes in hand-made chapbooks of poetry and prose. Our mission is to publish both emerging and established voices. We aim to help the emerging poet find an audience by creating a platform by which they can speak their truth. By holding space for both emerging and established voices, each can help lift the other. We look for well crafted, yet raw, poetry.

Be yourself. Question authority.... But seriously, we are interested in the genuine article. Work that represents you. We want to hear your voice and give you a platform to share your voice with our limited, yet growing audiance.
