Editorial Focus

Autumn House Press is a nationally renowned nonprofit publisher based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, whose mission is to publish and promote poetry and other fine literature. The press believes literature is an affirmation of the deep and elemental range of our human experience, and our need for it is crucial now more than ever. Autumn House is committed to championing debut, emerging, and established authors and to continuing to support our authors throughout their careers.

We ask that all submissions come through our annual prizes. We also suggest that anyone interested in submitting read an AHP title.
