ABOUT THE PRESS

Drop Leaf Press began at a round table in a living room. It was a place for making things and for sharing voices and textures. Each of us took turns playing the roles of curator and artist, host and guest, listener and storyteller, critic and teacher.

Our press is a council of equal voices, advocating new and emerging writers and artists. We encourage the hybrid and the caught ephemeral, the self-conscious and the sub-conscious, the worldly and the unworldly.

We seek joineries of the unexpected and the overlooked. We believe in flexibility and tactility.

We want our books to be gathering places for artists from all locales and genres to join in the gesture of sitting down and sharing something new. And with each new voice, each new book, we create space: we add a leaf to the table, room for more.

Our first full length publication, and my first book of poems, PRIMA VERA was published in the Spring of 2015.
