Architrave Press

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


All Architrave poems and accordion books are letterpress printed on fine paper by the editor at Central Print in St. Louis, MO using their antique Vandercook 215 proof press or their Chandler & Price platen press. 

Accordion books feature a single writer, whether multiple short poems or a single, longer poem. Type of folds and number of panels may vary depending on the poem inside.

Single 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...

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!
