Laura is the founder of Next Page Press is an independent publisher based in San Antonio, TX.
We publish contemporary poetry that is precise in language, clear in voice, and that fosters new thinking about how we make meaning in our lives. We are drawn to poems attentive to both image and sound. Next Page is committed to publishing professionally designed, beautiful books that feel good in the hand.
As a small press, we value community and collaboration and aim to build relationships with our authors and audiences. Next Page seeks writers who embrace working together to promote and create conversations around the books we publish. We hold a roll-up-the-sleeves attitude and work well with authors who actively take a role in getting word out about their books.
We look for submissions from a diverse range of writers, and we will make inclusive decisions about the authors we publish. While open to new and emerging voices, Next Page is especially interested in working with poets looking for a home for a second or third book.
Our first title, Ann Hudson’s poetry chapbook GLOW, was be released in October, 2021. Our first full-length collection, Alexandra van de Kamp’s Ricochet Script, will be released in April, 2022. Submissions are by solicitation only at this time.
Next Page Press is fully volunteer-run, attracting a team of associates with editorial, design, publishing, and podcasting expertise. Watch for news about our growth.
