We’re publishing two new full-length poetry books in July, Molly Mattfield Bennett’s Point No Point and The Happiest Day of My Life by Kevin Burris. Both books are contenders for the 2016 FutureCycle Poetry Book Prize. We have updated our Guide for Authors to include important information for anyone submitting work to us. Hey, be sure to like us on Facebook to get notifications of our Free Kindle Saturdays editions and Goodreads Giveaways.
Check out our tentative publishing schedule in the Events Calendar for more of what we are working on—plus lots of free goodies for fans of poetry. Click on the upper-right arrow of our calendar below for a list of color-coded sub-calendars. Click individual events for actionable links in the description. (If, when you do this, you are given a redirect link, it is safe to click on it.) In the current month, enter our month-long Goodreads Giveaways of paperback books. Our Free Kindle Saturdays editions, shorthanded by author last name and title abbreviation, link to their respective Amazon pages. 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?
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.
