Beautiful Books

We believe that there is a wonderful variety of fine, contemporary work being made today. The public is avid for art, poetry and literature that illuminate our world with beauty and meaningful ideas but which all too often do not meet the criteria of commercial publishers. This work can find a home here. We publish contemporary books of the highest quality. The books are as beautiful as their contents.
The emphasis will always be on quality and relevance to contemporary life.

RED MOUNTAIN PRESS has a full publication schedule for the near future. We will read new regular submissions of fiction, memoir, poetry, and essays in occasional reading periods. If invited to send your manuscript, use Times or Palatino 12 point font and format in Word or PDF, without gimmicks, glitz or gyrations. We have no fees for regular submissions. Information here. Manuscripts cannot be returned. Do not send attachments. Because of the large volume of malware, attachments will be immediately discarded.

NOTE: Due to unavoidable circumstances, the 2021 Poetry Prize has been suspended.
