We seek evocative, well edited literary work, poetry and narrative, that addresses contemporary life and has lasting value. Our books represent the point of view of the authors and are beautiful objects themselves. The authors retain full rights to their work. Every book we publish is an editorial collaboration.

We award an annual Poetry Prize of $1000 and publication of a full length book. We use papers and printers that are low impact and resource conserving.

Prize submissions are due by September 15.
