Sixteen Rivers

Got his notice from poet Barbara Jane Reyes at PAWAINC (see links in the sidebar):

Attention, Northern/Central California poets: Sixteen Rivers Press, a nonprofit cooperative press based in SF, is accepting full-length poetry manuscripts now through Feb. 1, 2016. Those whose manuscripts are selected (1-2) will become members of the collective with publication in early 2018. See for details and link to submission guidelines.

Sixteen Rivers Press was founded in 1999 by seven San Francisco Bay Area writers. Our goal was to create a sustainable, shared-work publishing collective run by and for Bay Area poets. The original model was Alice James Books, which in the 1970s created a regional collective press in the Boston area.

New Members Selection:New members are selected on the basis of a book-length manuscript of poems submitted during our reading period, November 1 to February 1. Prospective members are also asked to identify their interest in collective publishing and the skills they can bring to the press’s operation.
