We’re publishing two new full-length poetry books in September, George Moore's Saint Agnes Outside the Walls, a contender for the 2016 FutureCycle Poetry Book Prize, and guzzle by our senior editor and 2009 FutureCycle Prize winner Temple Cone. Check out our tentative publishing schedule in the Events Calendar for more of what we are working on. Note: Scheduling in later months is tentative; the schedule of forthcoming titles, especially, will change with conditions on the ground. You can copy individual events to your own calendar and sync to ours for up-to-the-minute info. How cool is that?
At FutureCycle Press, our number-one goal is to bring well-written, well-edited poetry to the attention of as many people as possible for as long as possible. We and our authors have worked very hard on these books, and we want everyone who loves poetry to read them—even if they cannot afford to buy them. The upper-right pull-down of our events calendar (below) shows a color-coded key. Click on any event on the calendar for more information in the description. Enter our month-long Goodreads Giveaways to win paperbacks, or build your poetry library with our Free Kindle Saturdays editions. Just click on an author event and description link, then select the Kindle link from our catalog page to "buy" that title for 0.00 in the Kindle store. Then it will always be yours, and you can even loan it to other people. (Tip: Each title repeats every six months or so, so if you miss out on something you wanted, check back later.) The giveaways may float around some based on circumstances on the ground, so it's a good idea to copy events you don't want to miss to your own calendar so they will auto-update for you if rescheduled. Or like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter to receive timely notifications. We ask only one thing: If you discover poets whose work you really like, please help us get the word out by sharing book notices online, leaving short honest book reviews on Amazon or Goodreads, telling your friends about it—whatever!
Are you a book reviewer or blogger wanting to interview one of our authors, an educator evaluating books for a reading list, or even a student with a term paper to write? The Reviewer Registry is meant for you. By signing up for the registry, you can freely download PDF versions of our titles (within limits) for your own personal use. (Except for limited classroom handouts, you may not disseminate the files.) Because of the complexity of the software integrations we use on our website, updates sometimes cause the Registry to stop working. If you encounter problems, please let us know.
Introduced in 2013, our Good Works projects are thematically focused anthologies of individual works. No reading fee is required, and all proceeds from sales are donated to a charitable cause. To date, FutureCycle Press has been able to donate a total of $1,447 from sales of Malala: Poems for Malala Yousafzai, guest-edited by Joseph Hutchison and Andrea L. Watson, to the Malala Fund. In 2015, we have given Friends of the Earth $381 for Weatherings (David Chorlton and Robert S. King, eds.) and $383 to Action Against Hunger for all Kentucky Review donations and sales. See our Submission Guidelines for open projects.
Kentucky Review, a division of FutureCycle Press and one of our Good Works projects, publishes a perpetual online magazine—including videos of poets reading their work—and an annual print anthology. Editor-in-chief Robert S. King is assisted by a stellar team of associates.
