    We are publishers of Irish poetry exclusively. Given our narrow focus, we regret that we cannot accept manuscripts from American poets, including Irish-American poets. If you are a native of Ireland and wish to submit a poetry manuscript, please email a representative sampling of your poetry and your biographical information to wfupress@wfu.edu. Alternatively, you may mail a hard copy of your work, biographical and contact information to Wake Forest University Press, PO Box 7333, Winston-Salem, NC 27109. Should you want the return of your submission, please include a self-addressed envelope with adequate postage. (See website for details)
