Poetic Matrix Press

If poets and lovers of poetry don't write, publish, read, and purchase poetry books then we will have no say in the quality of our contemporary culture and no excuse for the abuses of language, ideas, truth, beauty, and love in our cultural life.

Poetry & Micro Fiction with a strong Narrative. We like the Lyrical, embrace the formal as well as spokenword. Clarity is essential.

Pond Road Press

We publish poetry chapbooks. Statement of purpose: To publish an eclectic range of poetry: formal verse, free verse, ultra talk, prose poetry, humorous, serious, humanistic, etc., and to thereby provide some recognition for our authors. Some chapbooks contain author interviews as a way to highlight the author. We like unusual, penetrating points of view on anything and everything. That said, we are not into nature poetry at the moment. We publish perfect bound, POD, digitally printed chapbooks only.
