Moon Tide Press is dedicated to publishing the finest poets in the Southern California area, although the editors will consider authors from outside. Each of their authors go on a tour to promote his or her work, so the editors look for poetry that is invigorating both on the page and spoken out loud.
Tips From the Editor
We have no official rules in terms of style or subject matter, but if you send us a manuscript, make sure that it is typed, well-organized and not full of typos. Our typical book length is 60 to 80 pages, and anything below the minimum will not be accepted. In addition to publishing books, we have a "Poet of the Month" feature on our website in which poets (usually up-and-coming ones) are featured with a photo, a short bio and two poems.
