We use three imprints in addition to Pleasure Boat Studio. These are Caravel Books, for mysteries and crime fiction; Aequitas Books, for non-fiction with a sociological or philosophical theme; and Empty Bowl, for Eastern and ecological works.We do our best to publish work that is as strong as we can find. We are particularly interested in multi-cultural and quirky.

Please don't submit at this time. Our press is very small and has a backlog of commitments. Very sorry.

Our books represent the best of contemporary poetry published today in English and in translation. Even though our concentration is on contemporary poets in translation, we find some who have submitted work to our biannual journal for a lengthy period of time, to be the subject of a feature and then, if possible, a book of their work is considered for publication. We build on long-term relationships where the poetry meets our particular needs.

Please inquire before sending a full manuscript.

Wings Press was founded in 1975. The mission of Wings Press is to publish the finest in American writing—meaning all of the Americas—without commercial considerations clouding the choice. Wings Press is committed to producing literature that enlightens the human spirit and enlivens the mind.

Before submitting a full ms., Wings Press prefers a descriptive query, along with a short biographical note, prior reveiws, etc. Prospective authors should give us some idea of how they perceive their role in promoting the book. For example, poets should estimate the number of readings they give in a year. How much travel do they normally do in a year that can be coordinated with signings and readings? What is their social media presence?

Wave Books is an independent poetry press based in Seattle, Washington, dedicated to publishing the best in contemporary poetry, poetry in translation, and writing by poets. The press was founded in 2005, merging with established publisher Verse Press. By publishing strong innovative work in finely crafted trade editions and hand-made ephemera, we hope to continue to challenge the values and practices of readers and add to the collective sense of what’s possible in contemporary poetry.

Wave Books is not currently accepting any unsolicited manuscripts. We do occasionally have open reading periods, so please check our submissions page for updates. Please note that we do publish fiction, essays, and criticism but only by poets or related to poetry. Please do not email us outside of our open reading period.
