Mayapple Press

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Mayapple Press is a highly-selective small press founded in 1978 by poet and editor Judith Kerman. We focus on literature not often celebrated by either the mainstream or the avant-garde. This includes poetry which is both challenging and accessible; women’s writing; the rustbelt/rural culture that stretches from the Hudson Valley to the Great Lakes; the recent immigrant experience; poetry in translation; science fiction poetry. In general, we publish only authors with prior publications with reputable presses or literary magazines.

Please read the guidelines for your particular category carefully before uploading.

Note: We are closed to unsolicited manuscripts and samples until further notice. 

Thank you for your interest in publishing with Mayapple Press..
