Rockport Press is a micro-publisher specializing in poetry.

Our mission is to provide an opportunity to the many talented poets who deserve to be published.

Rockport Press is in tandem with Rockport Poetry Open Mic & the annual Rockport Poetry Festival. Our belief is that there are many voices that deserve to be heard both in spoken word and printed word.


We are a tiny shop that works in collaboration with print-on-demand services and small hand press printers. We collaborate and coordinate with poets. Due to our size we have limited time and ability to do marketing, but we will help you get your book, chapbook, or micro-chapbook published and available online and in local bookstores wherever possible. Editing services can be arranged on a case by case basis.


Although we are primarily interested in poetry, submissions of short stories, flash fiction, and 10 Minute Plays are acceptable.
