Autumn House Press was launched in 1998 when prominent American publishers, driven by economic concerns, dramatically reduced their poetry lists and important contemporary poets were left struggling to find publishers. Small presses are now publishing some of the most important poetry in America, and are largely nurturing the great American poetic tradition. We want to ensure that this tradition continues. In 2008, Autumn House supplemented our poetry list by initiating a series of fiction titles and in 2010 a series of nonfiction titles. ks receive the same attention to design and manufacture as our award-winning poetry titles.
