Blue Light Press

We publish poetry that is imagistic, inventive, emotionally honest, and pushes the language to a deeper level of insight. We are all poets, and our books are artistically designed. As a cooperative press, we rely on the poets we publish to actively promote their books, send out review copies, and set up readings at bookstores, universities, and reading series.
