About

Etched Press is a micro press currently based in San Diego, California. After a brief hiatus, we’re back with a new look. Etched Press was founded in 2008 in Wilmington, North Carolina as the Etched Press Poetry Series as a way to publish chapbooks that fit the maxim “writing that remains.” We seek to publish chabooks by emerging writers that bridge gaps between schools of poetry. We want work that reads fresh and exciting because of its use of multiple forms. We’re also fans of prose poetry. Our books are available on our website, on Amazon Kindle, and at author readings. Etched Press now publishes seven to ten titles annually.

Etched Press Society is the community outreach branch. It sends members into local schools to promote the creation and maintenance of arts education programs, especially during National Poetry Month (April).
