Editorial Focus

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 intends to produce multicultural books, chapbooks, Ebooks, and broadsides that enlighten the human spirit and enliven the mind. Good writing is, we believe, innovative, insightful, and interesting. But most of all it is honest. Wings Press is committed to treating the planet itself as a partner. Thus the press uses as much recycled material as possible.

Tips From the Editor

Keep in mind that Wings Press has some 200 active authors and that there is only one publisher/editor/designer. Regardless of what it looks like, there really are physical and fiscal limits to what one person can accomplish. Before submitting a full ms., "we" prefer 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?
