Editorial Focus

Alice James Books is a nonprofit cooperative poetry press, founded in 1973. One of the few presses in the country run collectively, we are committed to publishing a diversity of poets, with an emphasis on women, including both beginning and established poets, and a diversity of poetic styles.

Tips From the Editor

We have one annual manuscript contest: The Alice James Award (formerly the Beatrice Hawley Award), which is open to residents of the United States, postmark deadline November 1, notification of winners in February. We also accept submissions to the AJB Translation Series from September through March. Hardcopy and electronic submissions (via Submittable) accepted for all contests.
