If there's a poet living in your soul, stop, don't go
away.

In this poetry contest winning poems are accepted for publication in gorgeous hard cover books.

Our ongoing FREE poetry contest is now collecting entries of sincere, skillfully written poetry
to publish in our next beautifully illustrated  hard cover poetry anthology. . . J. Mark Press is a haven for sincere poets.
But to win acceptance, following our guidelines is mandatory. We don't publish anyone who puts words on paper.

We love to help turn aspiring poets into the best they are capable of being by not tolerating laziness or bad habits.
YOU KNOW whether you put in a line out of impatience or deep thought. We will know when we read it!!  
We publish only sincere expressions of poetry that touch the senses, that exemplify genuine concern for
metaphor, dissonance, rhythm, meter and inventive use of rhyme.  The qualities that identify with and delight the reader
and cause J. Mark hard cover poetry anthologies to be re-read time and again.

 "Poetry to Treasure"
Think about great lines you've heard that you wish you had written.
Try to write something that makes people wish they'd said that.
Everyone has an "if" or two. This should help your abstract thinking,
and lift you out of the here and now. Think about the if's... the possibilities
"If" you could change something past or future.
If it had... If it hadn't... If only it were...
If you could tell someone...
 PLEASE DON'T SAY, "what if" repeatedly in your lines.
 

We publish genuine, stimulating literary works, not fat volumes of words,
where anything of real merit gets buried.

To get on our stage, you need to say something significant, poignant,
memorable. You need to read some of the poetry on this web site
first. It will show if you didn't, and you may be banned from future entry.

When J. Mark Press says Poetry means a sincere attempt at traditional, artistic use
of the English language, not your way to lash out at an ex-lover, or wallow in misery or
self-pity. Don't ask questions, give answers.

 



About  Prizes in our new FREE poetry contest...


If published, your poetry that was accepted for potential publishing in our next anthology will also be considered

read it!  Read our winners. Evaluate how yours compares before you send it here.

Don't send to us because you think you might have written a poem, or someone said  "you ought to try to get published." Send because you know it should be in our books.

How Poetry Lives On...
From  Barbara (Morris-Fischer) Binstock
Ed/Pub. J. Mark Press

I want to share a really special experience  with all of you. About 35 years ago,
I took my young son to Central Park in New York City. 

One excellent poet we published that year was Emilie Glenn, (Greenwich Village, NY).  We published her poem "The Redhead in Washington Square."

On the train seat, heading for home, I found an independent press literary magazine,  "The Coffee House Review." In it was a poem that I've carried with me since: "
CLOCK OF THE ANIMALS" by Emilie Glenn

By coincidence, I was on this train with my son, having just taken him to see that magical "Clock of The Animals" at the Children's Zoo in Central Park, (like my father had taken me to see when I was 5 years old).

I wrote to Emilie to thank her for writing it.

Because I took it upon myself to publish this tribute to Emilie, I received this email from an old friend of hers:


Wednesday, February 18, 2009 4:41 PM
Subject: About Emilie Glen

Dear Barbara:
I enjoyed seeing Emilie Glenn's poem on your web page. I was Emilie's publisher for many years.  She died at the end of 1994. I have just published Volume 1 of her collected writings, a big book of 460 pages of most of her chapbook poems.

Information about the book, and the complete text of my biographical essay about
Emilie can be found at http://www.poetspress.org

I thought you might enjoy reading about Emilie's career and the impact
she had on so many young poets, some of whom (like me) made their
New York debut in her salon.
BRETT RUTHERFORD
THE POET'S PRESS


Please click here to read CLOCK OF THE ANIMALS by Emilie Glenn.

It has a surprise ending.
