Copies of chapbooks appear online, copies are mailed to friends of 2River, and authors receive copies to do with as they wish.
Editorial Focus: 

We prefer poems with these qualities: image, subtlety, and point of view; a surface of worldly exactitude, as well as a depth of semantic ambiguity; and a voice that negotiates with its body of predecessors.

Tips From the Editor: 

We like to think that writers have read several entries in the 2River Chapbook Series and that they are familiar with the history of poetry and poetic theory.
