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. They are dedicated to honesty, self-sufficiency (they don’t take grants, government funding, endowments, donations, or money from their 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 Submittable. We do not wish to receive physical submissions. We enjoy cover letters, though extensive details are not requirement. We are open in terms of subject matter and poetic genre; please see our mission statement on our website to learn more. We do not run contests.
