Editorial Focus

The mission at Belle Point Press is to celebrate the literary culture and community of the American Mid-South: all its paradoxes and contradictions, all the ways it gets people home. The editors are primarily interested in seeing work from writers tied to Arkansas and the surrounding area, including Oklahoma, Louisiana, Texas, Tennessee, Mississippi, Missouri, etc. as well as other Southern states (This connection doesn’t necessarily have to be explicit in the work itself.). 

Tips From the Editor

As a Mid-Southern regional press, show us what it means to be from around here.
