An Historiographical Analysis of Small Presses Publishing American Avant-Garde Poetry and

Poetics between 1970-2000


A Research Project funded by the Spanish Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación




This database includes a list of small presses of American innovative poetry. Most are published in the U.S., although we have inserted a small number of others influenced by this kind of poetry published in various continents. We thank Elena Mª Contreras for her help in the elaboration of this database.

About Atelos Books:

“Atelos was founded in 1995 as a project of Hip’s Road, devoted to publishing, under the sign of poetry, writing which challenges the conventional definitions of poetry, since such definitions have tended to isolate poetry from intellectual life, arrest its development, and curtail its impact. All the works published as part of the Atelos  project are commissioned specifically for it, and each is involved in some way with  crossing traditional genre boundaries, including, for example, those that would separate theory from practice, poetry from prose, essay from drama, the visual image from the verbal, the literary from the non-literary, and so forth. The Atelos project when complete will consist of 50 volumes.”

About Factory School:

Factory School is a learning and production collective engaged in action research, publishing, media display, and community service. Concerned with public education as much as education in public, Factory School emphasizes the social and cultural reproductive function of the multiple media arts. As a network of audio and video presentations, books, artwork, web-based installations, posters and pamphlets, we encourage use of all distributed materials for purposes of education in the broadest sense: in or out of the classroom, as prompts or models, as means or ends. Factory School seeks to engage with others operating in the areas of education, publication, distribution, and civic action. We consider today's artists, educators and activists to be the vanguard of a new generation of culture workers striving to transcend borders of nation, language, class, race, gender, institutional status, and other divides.

In the fall of l974, we'd been editing a poetry magazine called Stooge for a few years, but we decided to stop the magazine and start publishing books.

About Hanging Loose Press:

One of the Oldest Independent Literary Presses in the U.SThe first issue of Hanging Loose magazine was published in 1966 and it contained work by Denise Levertov, John Gill, Jack Anderson, Victor Contoski and other poets who would remain close to the magazine. The editors were in agreement that they were not interested in begging poems from famous writers but that they wanted to stress work by new writers and by older writers whose work deserved a larger audience. In 1968, the magazine introduced a feature which has become celebrated over the years, a regular section devoted to writing by talented high school writers. The editors are proud of having published many first books, including the first full collections by Sherman Alexie, Kimiko Hahn, D. Nurkse, Jack Agüeros, Cathy Park Hong, Eula Biss, Joanna Fuhrman, Hayan Charara, Maggie Nelson, Indran Amirthanayagam, R. Zamora Linmark, and Beth Bosworth, among others.

About Kelsey Street Press:

Kelsey Street Press was founded to address the marginalization of women writers by small press and mainstream publishers. From the beginning, we linked our editorial policy to a poetics of allowance that encouraged women to write directly from their own creative imperatives. Other founding goals were to publish a list that reflected the cultural variety in this country and to publish first books by unvetted writers. In the eighties, we instituted a series of cross-genre collaborative works between poets and visual artists. A decade later, as our list included more established writers, we created the Frances Jaffer Book Award for a first book to assure continued support of emerging poets. Our early books were handset and printed two pages at a time on a basement letterpress. Now we are exploring the interactive capabilities of the electronic media.

About Jubilat:

From the first issue onward, jubilat has aimed to publish not only the best in contemporary American poetry, but to place it alongside a varied selection of reprints, found pieces, lyric prose, art, and interviews with poets and other artists. Rather than section off these varieties of work, the magazine creates a dialogue that showcases the beauty and strangeness of the ordinary, and how experiments with language and image speak in a compelling way about who we are.

About New Victoria Publishers:

In 1985, New Victoria became a full-time publisher and Stoner McTavish was released, an immediate bestseller by Sarah Dreher, which is still in print.

For over 30 years, New Victoria publishers has been providing a voice for our community, publishing well over a hundred books by lesbians, about lesbians and their lives, winning three Lambda Literary Awards and being nominated for four more. New Victoria was named "Best of the Small Presses" by the Standard Journal in 2002 for the quality and reverence of our nonfiction titles. And Owl of the Desert was ForeWord Magazine’s Book of the Year Gold Medal Winner in the Gay/Lesbian fiction category.

About Reality Street:

Reality Street (previously Reality Street Editions) was formed in 1993, as an amalgamation of two independent poetry presses: Ken Edwards' Reality Studios, which had been operating in London since 1978 and Wendy Mulford's Street Editions, founded in Cambridge in 1972. The two presses recognised a common interest in publishing the poetry of what Ken has termed the "parallel tradition": its various formations in the UK being the British Poetry Revival, the Cambridge diaspora, and what has sometimes been called "linguistically innovative" poetry - all overlapping categories. There was also a common interest in post-New American Poetry, Language Writing and related North American fields, as well as adventurous poetry in other English-speaking regions and from other languages and cultures. In recent years, Reality Street has also been interested in experimental prose, both narrative and non-narrative.”

About A&A Book Publishing:

A&A Book Publishing Pty Ltd is a self-publishing house that publishes quality Non-Fiction (including Autobiography/Memoir, Business, Spirituality, Self-Help) and Fiction (Adult, Young Adults and Children). In 2007 the Short Stop Press Imprint was established for Fiction, e-book publications and our webstore. 

Initially this has resulted in a more conservative approach in what gets published; an accountant-type mentality that demands the author be able to justify his or her manuscript on the basis of marketability is applied to every potential book that passes across the desk of a commissioning editor that if it even makes it that far as increasingly publishing houses are simply refusing to accept unsolicited manuscripts and only publishing “name” authors or reprinting old titles.

About Singing Horse Press:

Singing Horse publishes the kinds of innovative writing all too often overlooked by mainstream trade and academic presses; a wide-ranging list of titles by a diverse group of authors, including Charles Bernstein, Harryette Mullen, Norman Fischer, and Rosmarie Waldrop, among others. In 2004, Ott turned the press over to Paul Naylor, the former editor of River City and coeditor of Facture. Under Naylor’s direction, Singing Horse Press will continue to support writers who pursue formally and intellectually challenging paths of expression and construction.”
