Kelsay Books is an independent press based in the U.S., publishing beautiful and timely collections of poetry. Our imprints appeal to a wide range of tastes, from free verse to formalism, featuring authors with a flair for traditional forms. We are drawn to work that relies on robust and fresh imagery and metaphor. And we love lyrical poetry almost as much as we love you for checking out our new blog. Here, you'll find readings and events, submissions opportunities, new releases, and all things KB as we grow our community online.
Publishing at our fullest capacity yet, we're leaning into the momentum—and bringing you along for the ride. In 2023, we plan to release up to 20 new titles per month, now in hardcover and e-book options! You can browse our latest releases below, including hot-off-the-presses All The Bad Girls Wear Russian Accents by Jane Muschenetz.
