A small poetry press founded on promoting and maintaining the values that make poems timeless.

Founded in 2009 and based in San Diego, California, we publish full-length and chapbook poetry collections in perfect-bound paperback editions. Our books are available at our store and ship from San Diego; additionally, most titles are distributed via Ingram, supplying retailers worldwide (including Indiebound & BookShop).

We do not run contests, nor accept grants, donations, or financial support from any institutions.
