About

Five Oaks Press is an independent press that publishes poetry chapbooks and full-length collections, as well as literary fiction (coming soon!). We host readings at AWP and nominate for the Pushcart Prize and any other awards we can find for our authors.

All of our titles are perfect-bound, with ISBN numbers, and are made available for purchase through our website. Our full-length collections are distributed by Ingram. We are mainly a print-on-demand publisher (meaning we don’t keep a large inventory of physical books), so we ask that our authors partner with us to market their works, which usually means committing to the purchase of a print run of the title (as their budgets allow) to sell at readings and/or festivals.

We also run The Live Oak Review, an online journal devoted to author interviews and book reviews of contemporary poetry, literary fiction and creative nonfiction.

Contact us at editor@five-oaks-press.com. Here is information about our staff and a sample of the poetry we have published since 2014.
