Hyacinth Girl Press is a lovely small press, that specializes in handmade chapbooks and puts our about six per year. From their duotrope page, “We consider ourselves a feminist press and are particularly interested in manuscripts dealing with topics such as radical spiritual experiences, creation/interpretation of myth through a feminist lens, and science. We think outerspace, in particular, is pretty darn cool. We also love collaboration – collaboration between poets, collaboration between a poet and other artist type, poetry in translation, collaboration with other presses. Interpret this liberally. Try us. While we are interested in poetry that deals with the otherworldly, we are not interested in being preached to. The ultimate goal of Hyacinth Girl Press is to bring feminism, mysticism, and scientific inquiry together with awesome poetry.”
