Welcome to Autumn House Press! We believe poetry is an affirmation of the deep and elemental range of our human experience, and our need for it is as crucial now as it ever has been. We are committed not just to publishing the prominent poets of our age, but also to publishing first books and lesser-known authors who will become the important poets of their generation. We pledge to edit this poetry with devotion and care, and to create beautiful books that are worthy of it.
We hope you’ll explore our selection of extraordinary poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and anthologies – for your own enjoyment, for classroom use, or as gifts for friends and colleagues. You can also learn about our annual Poetry, Fiction, and Nonfiction prizes, as well as our online journal, Coal Hill Review (please note that Autumn House accepts unsolicited manuscripts only through these contests). Or check out our upcoming readings and community outreach events on our online calendar.
