Editorial Focus

Since 2007, FutureCycle Press has published an eclectic mix of magazines, anthologies, and poetry books by some of the best contemporary English-language poets and writers, both known and unknown. They are now only reading manuscripts for their Selected Poems series, which provides a chronological sampling from books by poets with a substantial body of published work. Please refer to their submission guidelines for specific requirements; manuscripts not prepared in theirs series format will not be read.

Tips From the Editor

Poetry only. Concrete, columnar, or “scattered” poems (often impossible to effect in the companion Kindle edition) should be excluded. No all-caps titles, interior images, color, fancy formatting, or manually entered page numbers or instructions (like “stanza break here”). Our books are six by nine, so if your lines span a letter-sized page, we recommend you set all margins to inches inches to pre-check which lines might have to be wrapped/indented and how single poems might break across pages.
