Editorial Focus

Grid Books is a publisher of poetry, fiction, and fine art editions foregrounding creative work that springs from the margins and promoting work that reflects a diversity of voices, values, and lived experience. Grid Books publishes books selected from open reading periods and from the annual Off the Grid poetry contest, established to honor one poet over sixty. The prize includes an award of $1,000 and publication and distribution in print and audiobook formats.

Tips From the Editor

We seek a variety of perspectives expressed across genres and projects generated through intergenerational exchange, such as those encompassing oral history. We accept proposals from writers and editors whose work carries forward our mission and who will support us in maintaining a high standard of editing, design, and production quality across print and digital formats.
