Brick Road Poetry Press

We want to publish poets who are engaged in the writing community, including participating in poetry readings, workshops, and writers groups. The poets we are looking for are those who are avid readers (and purchasers) of contemporary poetry. We give preference to poets who are actively submitting their work to journals, magazines and contests, and who take part at writer's conferences/festivals-as an organizer, instructor or participant.

Brooklyn Arts Press

Brooklyn Arts Press (BAP) is a literary press devoted to publishing chapbooks and full-length collections of poetry, novels, lyrical short fiction, and art monographs by emerging artists. We believe we serve our community best by publishing great works of varying aesthetics side by side, subverting the notion that writers & artists exist in vacuums, apart from the culture in which they reside and outside the realm & understanding of other camps & aesthetics.

Brothel Books

Poems that make us want to throw your book across the room because it’s so damn good. Poems we like are often obsessed with myth, foreign languages, and our fathers. Bring orange groves to NYC, the epistolary language of turn-of-the-century Paris to an email exchange, or a fight with your boyfriend to pre-Roman Gaul. Poems that import and export imagery, but handle it carefully. Poems that take linguistic and personal risks feel more important to us.

C&R Press

C&R Press began in 2006 as a literary press committed to publishing books from new and emerging poets whose work might otherwise be ignored by commercial publishers. We were interested in supporting authors whose thoughtful and imaginative contribution to contemporary literature deserved recognition and support. We've since expanded our catalog to include exciting new fiction and nonfiction, too.
