The Primer of Zinnie Lucas by Sara Pennington

Our latest chapbook is now available! The Primer of Zinnie Lucas is a book the editors have wanted for a long time, and it's our pleasure to be able to share it with you.

You can find all of our titles in the Cooper Dillon Bookstore.

Cooper Dillon's Mission

Cooper Dillon is a small poetry press committed to upholding the virtues of Poetry as a high art and expression of truth, beauty, and sincerity: the values that make poems timeless.

Through the publication, distribution and promotion of positive and integrity-bearing full-length poetry collections and chapbooks, Cooper Dillon's full intent and purpose is to bring a sense of presence and joy via poems.

Cooper Dillon is dedicated to honesty, self-sufficiency (we don't take grants, government funding, endowments, donations or money from our authors), community building and evolution of the art form.

Become part of the Cooper Dillon Family by supporting our authors, teaching our books, and submitting your own work.

There are No Deadlines!

Having realized that "open" and "close" dates for a reading period are arbitrary, as well as obstacles for us to find works we'd love to bring to the community, Cooper Dillon Books now is happy to read submissions from poets all year round. If it feels right to share your work with us, we'd love to read it! Head to our Submissions page for full details and guidelines.
