Poets Wear Prada

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.

Publishing Genius

Publishing Genius is particularly interested in something else altogether. What is coherent? Why do we think we understand something while we think something else is nonsense? How can we avoid not knowing what we don't know? How can we make that process fun?
