About this project

$2,959

74

Horse Less Press is an eleven-year-old press, publishing poetry and hybrid genre texts. We have an online literary journal, and we publish hand-made chapbooks and perfect-bound full-length books. We are a feminist press and we are a queer press and we are dedicated to improving our diversity and widening our community. Our editors are poets and adjunct instructors who receive no outside funding to support the press; we use our own time and money to make this happen, because it's something we believe in. Your pre-orders and subscriptions help keep us going. 

Risks and challenges

Poetry is always risky, but we have been making chapbooks and full-length books for several years and don't anticipate any particular challenges in completing these projects.
