Editorial Focus

Autumn House is a nonprofit, independent press that has the mission of publishing poetry and other fine literature. We are committed not just to publishing the prominent writers of our age, but also to publishing first books and lesser-known authors who will become the important voices of their generation. In the belief that a book is not only a readable text but also an object of art, the press is dedicated to producing beautifully designed books on acid-free paper, as well as electronic texts of comparable quality.

Tips From the Editor

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