Horse Less Press is officially in its tween years, publishing poetry and hybrid genre texts. We have an online literary journal, and we publish hand-made chapbooks and perfect-bound full-length books. We are a feminist press and we are a queer press and we are dedicated to improving our diversity and widening our community. This year we doubled our editorial staff and expanded our plans for 2016: we will publish seven full-length books--titles by Jessica Comola, Phil Estes, Kate Schapira, John Colasacco, Stephanie Anderson, Serena Chopra, and Lara Montes-- and a minimum of 12 chapbooks, including titles by Christine Bettis, Daniela Olszewska, Cassandra de Alba, Lauren Brazeal, and Davy Knittle, as well as publishing a weekly online journal and a twice-monthly reviews and interviews page. Our editors are poets and writers and students and instructors and people working several jobs who receive no outside funding to support the press; we use our own time and money to make this happen, because it's something we believe in. Your pre-orders and subscriptions help keep us going.
Risks and challenges
Poetry is always risky, but we have been making chapbooks and full-length books for almost 12 years and don't anticipate any particular challenges in completing these projects; we just need your collaboration!
