Editorial Focus

Begun in 1979 by poet, teacher, and printer Gary Metras to print and publish short collections of quality contemporary poetry using the methods and equipment of the antique book arts, letterpress printing and hand-sewn bindings. The operation survives on a desired small scale without grants through the hard work of the publisher, the poets selected for publication, and the readers  and buyers of  the  books:  may we  each and all survive in poetry. The Press is currently closed to submissions.

Tips From the Editor
