New name for our series

Exciting change! This series is now called the Young Writer Series. Rather than just poetry, we are now going to publish students who write fiction and creative non-fiction as well. This way, more students will have the chance to possibly have their work published with us.

To kick off this fresh start, check out the first Young Writer Series reading we had on Tuesday, November 6th! See the link below:


Out Now!


Dan Calnan’s chapbook “To Move a Piano” was just published this month!

“In this collection, Calnan writes with a wisdom and authority beyond his years. Ranging in tone from witty to profound, these poems all demonstrate his intelligence and affinity with words. He is a writer to watch.” — Elizabeth Winthrop, author of Fireworks, December, and The Mercy Seat.

Maisie's cover

Maisie Ross writes of ignited passion, turmoil and poems that descend into darkness, …the nights go on and the silence becomes crowded…. Haunting and beautiful, these poems resurrect something that all of us have felt. A powerful book of poems that should be read.–Gloria Mindock/Cervena Barva Press/Somerville Poet Laureate
