This is the mother of all poetry book presses with open readings! Note, some of these do have reading fees and submission fees. But if you are shopping for a poetry book publisher, this gives you plenty to research so you can choose those that are a good fit for your book and for your goals as a poet. Special thanks to Tom Holmes for compiling this list! Also, don’t miss the links to his other lists for poetry contests in his description at the top.
In the past, I have created such lists as all the Small, Independent, and University Press Poetry Book Publishers (which was up-to-date as of 3-6-10 with 687 presses) and all the Journals with “Review” in Their Title, Who Accept Poetry, and Who Have a Website (which was up-to-date as of 2-29-12 with 344 journals.) The first lists I made were Poetry Book Contests with Spring & Summer Deadlines, Poetry Book Contests with Fall & Winter Deadlines (scroll down), and Poetry Chapbook Contests (scroll down).
Now, it’s time to start a new list, and I’ll keep it here and I’ll update it as I can. Currently, these are the only ones I remember or that other kind people have reminded me of. The list will grow, and if you know of any open readings, please note them in the comments and I’ll add them to the list…
