Editorial Focus

Stubborn Mule press publishes a combination of collected works of established poets, first time full-lengths for quality and dedicated emerging poets, and splits for everyone else. Also, radical art-poetry hybrids. Ok, ok, we will probably consider whatever you send us, but seriously, if you aren't old school or brand new, try to get a few of your poetry heroes to do a split with you, then send it to us. Our editorial ethic is "radical country" focusing on folks who exist at the margins of the capitalistic mainstream, writing more about identity than identity politics.
