Poetry Book Publishers

Another thing about poetry -- so many publishers are on board! It's very exciting to browse their websites. I know publishing poetry is mostly a labor of love; nobody is getting rich from selling chapbooks and poetry collections. Poetry books are so often quite beautiful in their design.

I've decided to make a list here of the presses I find to be publishing noteworthy books on a regular basis. Incidentally, if you represent a poetry press and you come across this list and have been omitted, please leave the URL of your website in a comment and I will consider adding you to the list. There's no way I am aware of every excellent press, and new ones pop up all the time.

If you find a broken link, please let me know -- I'll look into it.
