We have accepted books to publish through 2019. Please don't submit inquiries until mid 2019. In general, we are looking for a poetry collection that has at least three poems that have been published before. Book can be 40-100 pages long. Poems should be in final form. Publication history can be summarized in cover letter. Please send inquiry email first. We know how hard it is to get a poetry book published and we have to turn down at least 10-20 manuscripts for each one we accept.
Tips From the Editor
Please, no all-rhyming poetry, religious poetry, children's poetry, or a collection of only political poetry. I recommend reading some of our sample poems on the website or buying some Moon Pie Press books to get an idea of what kinds of poetry we publish. In general we like accessible, well-crafted poems.
