Editorial Focus: 

Vulgar Marsala Press was founded in 2009. In a nutshell, we are interested in poetry that explores philosophical, theological, and multi-dimensional issues. VMP welcomes satire and plays/stage productions in verse, and seeks to facilitate the internal bleeding of poetry into arthouse cinema, visual art, classical music, and any number of other mediums.

Tips From the Editor: 

Though our only criteria is talent, we do not publish spoken word, slam poetry, or, generally, more than 4 authors per year.
