Editorial Focus

River River Books was founded by Amorak Huey and Han VanderHart in March 2022. Inspired by the idea that you cannot step in the same river twice, at River River Books, two poetry editors join together to publish (at least) two exceptional poetry titles a year. By limiting their press catalog, the editors commit to supporting authors and their books with focused attention and joy.

Tips From the Editor

We are looking for poetry that knows itself—its locales, its region, its speaker. Poetry that is particular, rooted. Poetry that transgresses or extends or deepens our conception of concepts–gender, race, ability, sexuality, labor, borders, continents, language. Poetry that is spoken and lived, but has found its home on the page. Poetry that does not see itself above others, but that lives with and among others.
