The Book of Mankey by Richard Pierce

Our latest chapbook is now available! The Book of Mankey is a moving collection in the legacy of epic poems, where Pierce brings humor, music, and the risk of spirituality into our view, and we hope you love it. Follow the link to the store, and read some sample poems from this, or any other collection!

You can find all of our titles in the Cooper Dillon Bookstore.

Cooper Dillon's Mission

Cooper Dillon is a small poetry press committed to upholding the virtues of Poetry as a high art and expression of truth, beauty, and sincerity: the values that make poems timeless.

Through the publication, distribution and promotion of positive and integrity-bearing full-length poetry collections and chapbooks, Cooper Dillon's full intent and purpose is to bring a sense of presence and joy via poems.

Cooper Dillon is dedicated to honesty, self-sufficiency (we don't take grants, government funding, endowments, donations or money from our authors), community building and evolution of the art form.

Become part of the Cooper Dillon Family by supporting our authors, teaching our books, and submitting your own work.

There are No Deadlines!

Having realized that "open" and "close" dates for a reading period are arbitrary, as well as obstacles for us to find works we'd love to bring to the community, Cooper Dillon Books now is happy to read submissions from poets all year round. If it feels right to share your work with us, we'd love to read it! Head to our Submissions page for full details and guidelines.
