Poetic Matrix Press

If poets and lovers of poetry don't write, publish, read, and purchase poetry books then we will have no say in the quality of our contemporary culture and no excuse for the abuses of language, ideas, truth, beauty, and love in our cultural life.

20th Anniversary 2017-20

2017 will be the 20th year since Poetic Matrix Press began, starting first with a newsletter, then a series of chapbooks and then the first of our 60 plus full length books. We will begin soon a year long celebration of the over 60 books we have published. James Downs has suggested a Press anthology many time so next summer we are planning an anthology of our poets and will be in touch with all of you regarding this. I'm hoping to get recommendations from many folks on which poems to reproduce. Hopefully a reading in the Bay Area and one in San Diego will come out of this. It's been a great 20 years.
