Plan B Press is a small independent publishing company that produces high-quality, limited-run poetry chapbooks. Our primary focus is to publish authors at the beginning of their careers and create books that are visually appealing, combining imagery and words, and packaging the collections as a completed thought. Plan B Press also emphasizes the plastic nature of poetry by encouraging collaboration with artists from other mediums beyond traditional form. The Press was begun in 1999 along with Bardfest, a 30-day poetry festival in Berks County, PA to bring out work by those participating in that festival. While the Press has evolved from this original intent, the focus remains that art happens everywhere and that books can be works of art themselves, both in the quality of the language and the beauty of the presentation. Plan B Press encourages anyone submitting manuscripts to review some of the books that we have already published.

Important: Limited Demographic: Submissions are restricted to authors who have published fewer than three books.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • For book publishers, it is standard to submit a cover letter, synopsis, and sample instead of the full manuscript. Do this unless otherwise instructed.
  • Include a SASE with all mailed submissions, queries, and requests for guidelines, unless the editor replies via or email or guidelines state otherwise.
  • Be professional, patient and persistent.
