Editorial Focus

Plan B Press encourages, captures, presents, and preserves contemporary poetry by publishing and presenting emerging poets. They are a small independent publishing company that primarily produces high-quality, limited-run poetry chapbooks. They are venturing into the realm of perfect bound books for the first time, embracing the future. 

Tips From the Editor

Please consider the chapbook as a whole package, not just a collecton of unrelated poems.

Please consider the visual side of the book: how the book will be presented. Come with ideas.

Please send whole collections, not just two or three poems. We do not publish journals.
