Moonstone Publishing

The Moonstone Press

Moonstone has published an anthology for our annual Poetry Ink program for several years and talked about publishing books for the poets we work with. In 2014 we have launched The Moonstone Press with two books, two chapbooks by individual poets as well as two anthologies. 2015 will see many more books with The Moonstone Press imprint. Please contact us if you are interested in this program which includes publication, a launch event and sales via our website.

Things you need to think about

  • After the book is written, it always needs editing – you should hire an editor to review your work
  • Once “print ready” it needs to be formatted and prepared for the printer- this takes our artist
  • The cover needs to be created and formatted – this is a separate job for our artist
  • You should lay the book out for general design and paging and pick a cover illustration, this does not eliminate the need for us to have our artist prepare the manuscript for printing
  • There are various options like getting a ISBN, a bar code, listing in books in print, Amazon, Ingram or Baker & Taylor’s data bases, etc. – each item carries a cost
  • there is an array of questions to be answered: font, paper, cover, illustrations, dedication or acknowledgements

POETRY ANTHOLOGIES:

As Eleanor Wilner noted, “…nowhere else in Philly do we get such a wonderful mix of people, voices, and of generations, and it’s an experience in the varieties of personalities as much as in poetry and poetics-everything from uplift to satire, from political protest to personal sorrow, love poems and tirades, transgression and decorum, the outrageous and the outraged, ranters and restrained formalists, street and academy, performance poets and shy ladies barely audible-pretty much the human spectrum.”
