We publish contemporary poetry books and anthologies in English. Our list is eclectic, our intention to capture the spirit of our time through the vital art of poetry. Our annual FutureCycle Poetry Book Prize with honorarium is awarded for the book judged best of those we published that year. Our Selected Poems series highlights contemporary poets with a substantial body of work. Our Good Works projects—anthologies to benefit charity—showcase individual works. In short: We are a small press determined to look like a big one.


Some of the best poets writing today are represented in our catalog. We collaborate with our authors to make our titles the best they can be, and we do take our editorial role very seriously. We pride ourselves on our skill and the care we give the books we publish—in both print-on-demand and Kindle editions. In a world where poetry is both ubiquitous and unlikely to be profitable, we strive to keep our titles in print and widely available. Poetry matters that much.
