FutureCycle Press is dedicated to publishing lasting poetry in both print (on demand) and ebook formats. Founded by long-time independent editor/publishers and partners Diane Kistner and Robert S. King, the press incorporated as a nonprofit in 2012. All of our editors, some of them distinguished poets and authors in their own right, volunteer their time to the press.

Submission Process

We publish English-language poetry books and chapbooks written by one author plus anthologies of individual poems and flash fiction. We read year-round, and it is not necessary to query before submitting to us. Unless specified for a particular category, there is no fee for submitting your work. We endeavor to respond within three months, earlier if possible. Simultaneous submissions are okay, but see our guidelines before submitting.

Our focus is on making books of high quality, and therefore we take our editorial role very seriously. We are becoming famous for the extra attention we pay to ensure the books we publish are as strong as they can be—and also for involving our authors in the design process. (If you are interested in the particulars of how we work, see our Guide for Authors.)

Publishing Model

We have evolved a publishing model that allows us to focus solely on vetting and preserving for posterity the most books of the highest quality without becoming overwhelmed with bookkeeping and mailing, fundraising activities, or taxing editorial and production "bubbles." Our contract is designed to give authors the maximum exposure for their work and also the maximum return on copies they sell. We are dedicated to giving all authors we publish the care their work deserves, making our catalog of titles the most distinguished it can be, and paying forward any earnings to fund more great books.

In Short

We are a small press determined to look like a big one.
