Distributors: 
Chapbooks don't really have an established distributor network. We sell direct through our website, and depend on our authors to be selling their books at readings.
Editorial Focus: 

We are interested in the chapbook as a compositional unit. Just as some ideas are sonnet shaped, some ideas are novel shaped, and some ideas are blog shaped, we believe that some ideas are chapbook shaped, and we endeavor to publish the best of those that come our way.

Tips From the Editor: 

We are very different from other publishers, in that we guarantee a one business day turnaround time and provide a ready-to-print .pdf if we don't accept the (electronic) manuscript for publication.
