Words Dance Publishing has one aim:
To spread mind-blowing / heart-opening poetry.
Words Dance Publishing is an independent press out of Pennsylvania. We work closely & collaboratively with all of our writers to ensure that their words continue to breathe in a sound & stunning home. Most importantly though, we leave the windows in these homes unlocked so you, the reader, can crawl in & throw one fuck of a house party.
Through our ongoing online poetry magazine, where we share new poems on Tuesday + Thursdays. We publish a stirring mix of poetry & art by established & budding poets/artists of the present; talent of all ages & from every background & poems in any form.
We publish beautiful perfect bound books by poets we solicit. We are not taking manuscripts at this time but may in the future.
Our blog publishes art, interviews, reviews, music plus more by an ever-awesome staff of poets!
Words Dance has been spreading poetry since 2003 in an array of mediums. It started as a quarterly webzine & every issue was freely accessible on the web. In 2005, after the 6th issue, founder Amanda Oaks made the decision to steer it into a print magazine & start her own press : Verve Bath Press (which has now morphed into Words Dance Publishing.) Turning out a journal packed with some of the finest poetry of our day was awesome, but she still had an itch, she wanted to strengthen Verve Bath’s arsenal, so she took to creating handmade chapbooks & in 2013 those evolved into full-length perfect bound books! Words Dance has carved out a space in small press history & we are looking forward to what the future will unfold.
