Primary Editor/Contact Person
Louffa Press is committed to providing a venue for unique voices, and also actively seeking stories and poetry from women and persons of color. For several years, our main focus was single-author chapbooks of microfiction, or flash fiction, but recently we have opened the submissions to unusual poetry as well. Submissions should be considered at the conceptual level first, by sending an email to david [at] louffapress [dot] com. Artist books are by invitation only.
