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.

Dia de los Muertos Celebration
October 23rd at the Davis Cemetery, Davis, CA honoring Francisco X Alarcón 1963-2016
2017 20th Anniversary
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 are beginning our year long celebration of the over 60 books we have published. James Downs has suggested a Press anthology many time so we are starting a review of our books looking for two poems from each to include in the anthology. If anyone reading this would like to recommend poems please do so. We will consider all recommendations in the final choices. We'll begin showcasing these poems on our Forever Journal blog on our website www.poeticmatrix.com. We are planning a reading in the San Francisco Bay Area and one in San Diego. It has been a great 20 years and continues on.
