Scott Wiggerman and David Meischen founded Dos Gatos Press in 2004. We have published the Texas Poetry Calendar annually since 2006, when we took over its publication from Flying Cow Productions. In 2008, we released our first trade publication, Big Land, Big Sky, Big Hair: Best of the Texas Poetry Calendar. Since then we have published collections by two Texas poets—Redefining Beauty, now in its third printing, by 2010 Texas Poet Laureate Karla K. Morton, and Letting Myself In by Anne McCrady. In 2011, we published Wingbeats: Exercises and Practice in Poetry, following up in 2014 with Wingbeats II, our most ambitious project to date. In addition, we have published the first two installments in a new series, Poetry of the American Southwest—Lifting the Sky: Southwestern Haiku and Haiga (2013) and Bearing the Mask: Southwestern Persona Poems (2016). Having called Austin, Texas, home until the spring of 2015, we have made a place for ourselves in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
A nonprofit, tax-exempt corporation organized for literary and educational purposes, Dos Gatos Press seeks to make poetry more widely available to the reading public and to support writers of poetry—especially in Texas, New Mexico, and the Southwest.
