Editorial Focus: 

Publishing poetry with a pulse in the heart of California's Central Valley since 2000. We host a FALL poetry book contest (Jun-Dec) and a SPRING poetry book contest (Jan-Jun), both of which are open to all poets, with or without previous book publication.

Tips From the Editor: 

New and emerging writers are especially invited to submit. No restrictions on content, style or subject matter. We are simply looking for the best poetry we can find. “We like honest voices, stunning imagery, and language so good we get chills reading it. We like books that open themselves, invite us to sit in comfortable chairs, and speak to us like we’re equals in an imbalanced world. Mainly, we want to publish poetry with a pulse in the heart of the Central Valley for as long as we live here.” (There is no preference given to Central Valley or CA writers. Our press is located here, but our writers come from all over the country.)
