Ornithopter Press is an independent publisher of poetry with a focus on work by contemporary authors offering exceptional counterpoints to the literary mainstream. The press publishes both chapbooks and perfect bound paperbacks.
Prior to 2018, the press focused exclusively on chapbooks by individual authors. Each chapbook is limited to a single short run.
This year, Ornithopter introduced the first in a prospective collection of perfect bound books by writers who are too unconventional (too interesting!) to find a home with the big commercial publishers.
Both books and chapbooks will remain integral to the press's mission. The possibilities are endless . . .
A few people have asked if they can help support this mission, with the understanding that the press does not have nonprofit status. Clicking on the "donate" button below will enable you to give as much or as little as you wish. If you choose to do so, thank you.
