Pleiades Press publishes several books of poetry and prose each year through the Lena-Miles Wever Todd poetry prize, the Pleiades Press Editors Prize for Poetry, the Robert C. Jones Prize for Short Prose, and  the Visual Poetry Series.

Pleiades Press also publishes a book a year through the Unsung Masters Series edited by Wayne Miller and Kevin Prufer. Each volume focuses on an important writer whose work has been unjustly neglected and features both a generous sample of creative work and numerous essays. Unsung Masters Series volumes are distributed free to subscribers with the June issue of Pleiades: A Journal of New Writing and are also widely available through Small Press Distribution and on this site.

Please contact the series editors Wayne Miller  or Kevin Prufer directly with queries about the Unsung Masters series. We are currently reading poetry manuscripts submitted to the Pleiades Editors Prize for Poetry. You can find the guidelines here.
