Editorial Focus

The primary goal of Parlor Press is to publish outstanding writing and scholarship in various subjects for a broad range of readers. Parlor Press values excellence, innovation, accessibility, creativity, and wit. The Press supports the rhetorics of marginalized voices and groups consistently and equitably.

Tips From the Editor

Parlor Press is especially interested in collections that use language to dramatize a singular vision of experience, a mastery of craft, a deep knowledge of poetic tradition, and a willingness to take risks. The series is oriented toward free verse, but editors will happily consider other forms.

Parlor Press also publishes creative nonfiction and fiction, but submissions are by invitation only. The data listed here refers to the Free Verse Editions Series, edited by Jon Thompson. Illuminations: A Series on American Poetics publishes work about poetic traditions and new directions.
