The primary mission of Imaginary Friend Press is to promote a community of writers in conversation with each other. We want to promote the best work possible. We want to promote less heard, underrepresented, and ignored voices. We want our authors to receive the best, most attentive audience possible. If you become an IFP author, we’ll want that for you as much as you want it for yourself.

Imaginary Friend Press has changed our reading periods. We sadly will no longer read all year round, but rather have three separate periods every year. We will still publish between 4-6 chapbooks a year and a full length collection; we will choose these books from our new submission periods. Our new reading periods will be as follows:

April 1 to June 1 - Full length poetry books

Details for each reading period will be on the website.

We've also moved towards an electronic submission format. Please follow the link to our submittable page:
