Poetry was among the first areas that Wesleyan University Press published in when the press was established in 1957. Since the beginning, the press has been committed to pushing the boundaries, both of poetic form and of the imagination. Over the years, a number of honors have been bestowed on Wesleyan poets, including Pulitzer Prizes and National Book Awards, among many others.
