Editorial Focus

2Leaf Press is a Black/Brown Female-Led Press whose mission is to publish multigenerational and multicultural poets, authors, artists, activists, and scholars who share stories and ideas that inform, entertain, educate, inspire, and connect to readers everywhere. Formerly an imprint of the Intercultural Alliance of Artists & Scholars, Inc. (IAAS), as of 2020, 2Leaf Press is published by 2Leaf Press Inc., a Florida-based nonprofit organization with offices in New York.

Tips From the Editor

2Leaf Press began as a poetry press and then expanded into nonfiction that addresses cultural and contemporary issues, including literary criticism, memoirs, and collections of short stories and essays. We occasionally publish fiction, and will only consider poetry from established poets with a track record. You may want to consider submitting books under our 2LP Series and invite you to consider those requirements. Tip: Make sure you have a professional editor review your work before you submit it. Submissions riddled with typos and poorly formed poetry will automatically get discarded.
