Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
In 1971, Beyond Baroque began issuing chapbooks in order to publish works by both emerging and established poets. Titles include the first book from Los Angeles’s inaugural poet laureate, Eloise Klein Healy, and works by Dennis Cooper, Amy Gerstler, Bill Mohr, Harry Northup, Holly Prado, and Wanda Coleman, amongst others. The Center’s current press, Beyond Baroque Books was launched in 1998. It has published works by Jean-Luc Godard, Jack Hirschman, Diane di Prima, David Meltzer and others. The Pacific Coast Poetry Series imprint was launched in 2013 and has published five titles, including the anthology Wide Awake: Poets of Los Angeles and Beyond. Beyond Baroque Books continues to unearth cult rarities, as well as collections by acclaimed poets, educators, and literary luminaries.
