Concrete Wolf

Concrete Wolf has been publishing chapbooks since 2001. We have no preference as to formal or free verse. We probably slightly favor lyric and narrative poetry to language and concrete, but excellent examples of any style get our attention.

Convulsive Editions

Convulsive Editions is a micro-press that publishes affordable, well-designed chapbooks, broadsides, french folds, and other printed matter featuring lyrical writing that quakes and rattles. We take our name from André Breton who suggests the idea of "convulsive beauty" in Nadja: “It consists of jolts and shocks, many of which do not have much importance, but which we know are destined to produce one Shock, which does.” We are especially interested in promoting the work of early career poets.
