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, now our Forever Journal blog; 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, Virginia, Northern, Central and Southern California as well as Ireland, England and South Korea. A few years back James Downs, Assoc. Editor, started our Poet’s Comments, now set-up as a blog. We are currently publishing out of Madera, California.
