Futurepoem books is a New York City-based publishing collaborative dedicated to presenting innovative works of contemporary poetry and prose by both emerging and important underrepresented writers.
Our rotating editorial panel shares the responsibility
for selecting, designing and promoting the books we produce. We currently
publish two titles per year. Futurepoem also occasionally invites writers
or multi-genre artists to produce work for special projects that is then
documented in print or via other media.
Futurepoem is supported by individual donations, and made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, as well as by a grant from the CLMP/Jerome Foundation "Face Out" program for emerging writers, and by previous grants and support from the National Endowment for the Arts, Fund for Poetry, Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts and New York Community Trust. Futurepoem, Inc. is a tax-exempt 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization, incorporated in New York State.
