  • Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
    Poets & Traitors Press is an independent publisher of books of original poetry and translations by a single author/translator. Poets & Traitors seeks to showcase authors who travel between writing and translation, artists for whom Language is made manifest through languages and whose own word carries, shapes, and is shaped by that of another. ​ Poets & Traitors views translation as forming part of a continuum with the creative writer’s work. Most poetry presses and contests explicitly forbid the inclusion of any translated work, while the handful of independent presses that publish translations are not concerned with translators as writers. Poets & Traitors aims to demolish this wall between writing and translation by publishing books that cultivate a dialogue between the two—books that combine poetry and translations by one writer-translator.
