Editorial Focus

Cooper Dillon is a small poetry press committed to upholding the virtues of Poetry as a high art and expression of truth, beauty, and sincerity: the values that make poems timeless. We are dedicated to honesty, self-sufficiency (we don't take grants, government funding, endowments, donations or money from our authors), community building and evolution of the art form.

Tips From the Editor

Cooper Dillon considers poetry manuscripts only. Please remember to include a table of contents and to paginate your manuscript, and submit through our Submittable system. We do not wish to receive physical submissions. We enjoy cover letters, though this is not a requirement. We are open in terms of subject matter and poetic genre; please see our mission statement on our Web site to learn more. We do not run contests.
