A Little About Us
Our founder decided to start Poetry Wolf after a chat with a successful slam poet about her self-published chapbook and her desire to not only publish more work through a publisher, but to maintain creative control over things such as cover art. We publish because we love poetry and that is our first and only impetus for printing – any profit will go toward operational costs or the local community!*
We currently only publish manuscripts of chapbook length (between 20 – 30 pages not including front matter) via Submittable. We do not have the resources of a larger publishing house, so we are limited in the number of chapbooks we print. By printing the poets we are truly excited about, we will be able to do more for each individual poet. To see our current publications please check out the Books page.
*Donation location is decided at the discretion of the editor-in-chief, but will typically be sent to a good cause in the published poet’s city.

Our Commitment to Community
We print exclusively with French Paper Company products.
French Paper Company has been manufacturing paper for more than 140 years in the same community of Niles, Michigan and are powered by fully renewable hydroelectric energy! It’s safe to say that American made, environmentally sustained paper is the best and only option for our books.
POETS HELPING POETS
Poetry Wolf is a poet-first publisher. We will work with you, to the best of our ability, on cover designs and any with other concerns you may have. Let’s make the best book possible!
Beyond business, all Poetry Wolf staff are involved in their city’s poetry scene. We are at readings, attending workshops, or simply reading local poets’ work. This allows us to learn more about our community and see poets killing it out in the world beyond the page.
