  • Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
    Our Mission Skull + Wind Press strives to publish diverse voices of national importance while we closely tend to our regional responsibilities. As an organization based in, and in love with, our local community in Albuquerque and our wider communities in New Mexico and the Southwest, we also strive to foster an inclusive community that can support these voices. The long history of art, artists, and artist communities in New Mexico—from the earliest Apache, Dine, and Pueblo artists up through the Taos Art Colony and into the present day—will always inform, guide, and inspire how we run our press and position ourselves on the land we occupy and the space we take up in our community. As a press based in the Southwest we will always hold space on our list for Indigenous writers and Latinx writers. The importance of celebrating new and important voices while also preserving and highlighting the evolution of the many distinct cultures in the Southwest cannot be overstated and we will always do whatever we can to support as many of these voices and cultures as possible. Specific Vision for our First Year: Across two seasons (fall and spring) we hope to publish two chapbooks and two full-length poetry collections. Here’s how we hope things will break down: Fall One bilingual chapbook One full-length poetry debut Spring One bilingual chapbook One full-length 2nd or 3rd poetry full-length collection via our Seconds + Thirds Series

    We will hold open, fee-free submissions annually for as long as that is sustainable while also soliciting poets directly. While we will be fee-free we will also ask poets who can to donate what they can to help keep us going.
