MISSION: To recognize that readers/lovers of poetry are the "imaginary friends" of poets, and to continue the dialogue between poets and readers by publishing affordable, pamphlet-style poetry chapbooks. To promote the well-crafted, socially relevant poetry of poets from a diverse array of ethnic and cultural backgrounds, who are working class and/or outside of academia, GLBTQ, feminist, politically and socially engaged, of non-mainstream organized religions, experimental, etc.; to ensure that such poets have a physical product with which to self-promote and legitimize their art. To "pair" each IFP author with a more established poet of his/her choosing, whom we will solicit for an introduction (in the form of a poem, review, interview, or another form appropriate to a given work, to be printed in the chapbook) so as to provide emerging poets with an audience which transcends their primary circle of acquaintances and foster a literary community which is less hierarchical and more interactive.

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 novel/collection 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.
