Editorial Focus

Our books represent the best of contemporary poetry published today in English and in translation. Even though our concentration is on contemporary poets in translation, we find some who have submitted work to our biannual journal for a lengthy period of time, to be the subject of a feature and then, if possible, a book of their work is considered for publication. We build on long-term relationships where the poetry meets our particular needs.
