Architrave Press

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

All Architrave poems are letterpress printed on fine paper by the editor at Central Print in St. Louis, MO using their antique Vandercook 215 proof press. Poems are printed as individual 5 1/2 x 8 inch pages which can be collected into reader-curated chapbooks or journals. Imagine a playlist of favorite songs, but composed of poems...

For fall 2016 and spring 2017, Architrave will release bound compilations of our existing stock.  

That means Edition 11 won't see print until fall 2017. That's too long to ask a poet to wait to see their poem, so the submission queue is currently closed. Responses have been sent on all previously submitted work. The submission queue will reopen in July of 2017. 

Full text of both the poems and liner notes for Editions 1 through 10 can be read via the editions tab at the Architrave website.  

To withdraw a poem: open your submission and use the note function to let us know which poem(s) you need to withdraw. Thanks!
