A New Project

We've teamed up with Voices on Gaming to publish an anthology called "Press Start & Game On."

We're super excited for this because we've been hitting the table top hard, chucking handfuls of dice, and making sure our FIFA 15 game is on point.

Check out the guidelines for the anthology here.

We're working on our new masthead/motto:

1. Give no fucks.
2. Make good art.
3. Don't be a jerk.

P O E T X T S, by franciszka voeltz

Imaginary Friend Press is happy to release the first book in 2015, franciszka voeltz's P O E T X T S! This book was selected for publication from our first chapbook contest in 2014.

This book of tiny lyrical poems is full of gorgeous language and movement.
P O E T X T S is also a micro chapbook, which means it is IFP's physically smallest book to date!
