Poetic Matrix Press was founded in the high mountain beauty of Yosemite in 1997, and has since grown into a press that is producing full-length books as fine as any that can be seen in any bookstore or library. We started by producing a newsletter of poetry and essays on the poetic experience, then in 2000 we put out a nationwide call for manuscripts and published a total of 4 manuscripts in chapbook format. Since 2001 we have published full length perfect bound books, including books by poets in New York, West Virginia, Northern, Central and Southern California as well as England and South Korea. We are currently publishing out of Madera, California.

2017 is the 20th Anniversary of Poetic Matrix Press, now with close to 60 full length books. We are into our year long celebration of these books. Work has began on the Poetic Matrix Press author anthology. We are looking to place 2 poems from each book plus a new piece from each author and an updated bio. If anyone reading this would like to recommend poems please do so. We will consider all recommendations in the final choices. We’ve begun showcasing these poems on our Forever Journal blog at our website www.poeticmatrix.com. We are planning a reading in the San Francisco Bay Area and one in San Diego. It has been a great 20 years and continues on.
