Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
​Next Page Press is an independent publisher based in San Antonio, TX. We publish contemporary poetry that is alive in language, clear in voice, and that fosters new thinking about how we make meaning in our lives. We are drawn to poems attentive to both image and sound. Next Page is committed to publishing professionally designed, beautiful books that feel good in the hand. As a small press, we value community and collaboration and aim to build relationships with our authors and audiences. Next Page seeks writers who embrace working together to promote and create conversations around the books we publish. We hold a roll-up-the-sleeves attitude and work well with authors who actively take a role in getting word out about their books. We look for submissions from a diverse range of writers, and we will make inclusive decisions about the authors we publish. While open to new and emerging voices, Next Page is especially interested in working with poets looking for a home for a second or third book. First release: October 2021.

Submissions Policy
The first few titles will be solicited to build an aesthetic and catalog that represents the vision of the press. Next Page is particularly interested in supporting writers who are looking for a home for a second or third book of poems, though we will consider emerging voices. Once Next Page has a few titles out, I expect to have month-long open reading periods 1-2x a year.
