Editorial Focus

Based in the DC area, we're obviously partial to poets and writers in the Delmarva area. But we have published books by a British poet and other writers scattered along the Atlantic coast.  Always open to anthologies. Lean more experimental than traditional.

Tips From the Editor

Query first. We published 2 books in 2022 and have 2 books forthcoming this year. We like the 100-200pp range.  Costs and delays slowed everything down from 2019-now.
