Free Presse?

FROM RACHEL MALLINO:

Hello –

Below is the list of presses and publishers I’ve been able to compile (with the help of some awesome poets), that do not charge reading fees for chapbook or full length manuscripts. Unfortunately, it is a short list in the scope of the poetry community. What is also obvious is the tendency to have free reading periods amongst those presses whose aesthetic leans more towards the post-avant or experimental. It seems those of us who write more linear/narrative poetry are stuck in a poetic time warp of some sort. I will be posting this list very shortly to the Tilt Press website and blog, where it will stay forever, (for-eva, eva?)- yes. Short list or not – I think it’s important for poets to know that there ARE presses that read manuscripts for free. As important, I’m hoping that more people will support these presses by purchasing their books. I will do my best to keep the list updated on a continuing basis. I welcome anyone to email me at rachel@tiltpress.com if they wish to be added to the list.
