Miami University Press publishes two or three books a year: poetry and poetry in translation, novellas and short fiction, and books about Miami University history and conferences. We regret that, due to limited staff, we are unable to read or respond to unsolicited manuscripts or queries.
Beginning in 1992, Miami University Press brought out two books of poems each year by poets who had already had at least one full-length collection of poetry published. This first series, edited by James Reiss, featured poets including Ralph Angel, whose Neither World won the 1995 James Laughlin Award of The Academy of American Poets. Hugh Seidman’s Selected Poems: 1965-1995 won a 1995 Critics’ Choice Award and was chosen as one of the Village Voice’s “25 Favorite Books of 1995.”
Since 2004, when Keith Tuma assumed its editorship, the press has published one book of poetry each year, often featuring poetry by British and Irish poets and poetry in translation, though it also continues to publish American poets. In 2013, Peter Manson’s Stéphane Mallarmé: The Poems in Verse was a finalist for the Corneliu M Popescu Prize given biennially by the Poetry Society of London to a book of poetry translated into English from another European language.
