Publisher’s Notes:

We’re proud to say that we set the standard high enough that we have a problem with aspiring business competitors posing as potential clients. We will not answer a barrage of in-depth questions without firstly seeing manuscripts.

Please take the time to get acquainted with our site. See our “Q & A” page, our “Get Published” page, and our “Wholesale” page. We will be happy to answer all else and perhaps add it to the site. Thanks.

Authors, we only accept electronic manuscripts (we proofread, but we do not transcribe).

MUCH THANKS to our fine poets for growing Middle Island Press,
and THANK YOU, READERS, for supporting living poets!
