Measure Press 16

About

Our goal is to continue bringing our readers the best new poetry from both established and emerging writers through publishing several collections of poetry a year. These books, which consist mainly of full-length collections of original poetry and the occasional book on prosody or critical studies of particular poets, are acquired through open submissions. We're looking for not only established poets but also new writers who might be overlooked by larger presses because of their interest in form and meter.

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.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
