WordTech Communications LLC is one of the nation's largest poetry publishers, bringing out approximately 50 titles per year. Our six imprints focus on lyric, narrative, formal, social, and experimental poetry.We strive to publish a wide variety of poetry that is diverse in style, subject and technique but is unified in its excellence. We are unique among contemporary poetry publishers for the emphasis we place on bringing poetry to a buying audience--in short, for the emphasis we place on selling books. We do not charge reading fees, nor do we accept outside funding. We are focused solely on publishing and selling excellent poetry. This focus also means that we are not the publisher for every poet. The poets we publish must be active partners in the marketing and promotion of their books, especially by doing readings and similar events. If you are uncomfortable with the public presentation and promotion of your work, you may be better off with another publisher.
Important: They have separate submission periods for chapbooks and full-length collections.
Limited Demographic: Submissions are restricted to residents of the United States.
