Editorial Focus

We publish poetry that is imagistic, inventive, emotionally honest, and pushes the language to a deeper level of insight. We are all poets, and our books are artistically designed. As a cooperative press, we rely on the poets we publish to actively promote their books, send out review copies, and set up readings at bookstores, universities, and reading series.

Tips From the Editor

I love to see the transformation of experience into art, and art always requires a transformation. The best poems speak to body, mind, heart and soul. Be sure to include a SASE, as we like to make personal comments. Our new anthology, River of Earth and Sky: Poems for the Twenty-First Century, showcases more than 100 poets we deeply admire. This book was a top bestseller on Amazon.
