We believe that poetry deserves promotion and increased attention in our community. We want to bring well-written, well-edited poetry to the attention of as many people as possible, including those who cannot afford to buy our books. So, each month we give away multiple copies of a single book on Goodreads.

Each title repeats every six to nine months, so check back later if you miss out on something you wanted. Or follow us on Facebook or on Twitter to hear about each month’s free book.

If you discover poets whose work you really like, help us get the word out by sharing our book notices online, leaving a book review on Goodreads, or telling your friends about it—we really appreciate it!

Dennis Caswell, Phlogiston

Phlogiston by Dennis Caswell

“The poems of Phlogiston are brimful with humor, intelligence, love of language, pop culture references, science factoids, and sexiness. I admire the deft blending of such cosmological, political, and religious oddities as ‘we pull back the future’s endless undies.’ And this joyful hilarity is balanced by a deeply personal and thoughtful poignancy in poems to a distant father, an aunt, Emily Dickinson (in anagrams), his mother. ‘… if our deaths are like stars that blew up ages ago, and we’re just waiting until the light gets here …’ these poems are gleefully lighting the way. –Peter Pereira
