This is an extremely challenging time for our writing and small press publishing community. We know not everyone is dealing with health concerns but the significant economic impact to individual writers, artists, and arts organizations - including small press publishers.
What follows are lists from fellow arts organizations of resources for artists and non-profits in regard to health, funding, work opportunities, and more in response to the international spread of COVID-19. We hope these are useful to you and that they get into the hands that need them most. Above all, we hope that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy in these strange, uncertain times. Thank you for your continued support.

We are excited to present you with our brand new Futurepoem site and look for our press.
From the beginning Futurepoem finding and celebrating daring new literary voices with unique points of view. So we wanted to create a site and new press identity that also expressed a unique point of view, but still felt welcoming and easy to use at the same time. We hope you like our new look. Let us know what you think and any suggestions about how to make our site better. Our sincerest thanks to Jessica Green and Tom Griffiths at Everything Studio for their amazing work creating this new site and press identity.
This blog will be the place to find exciting Futurepoem news about new authors, books, events and upcoming submissions periods. Plus we'll also be posting responses to recent Futurepoem books, posts by special guest bloggers and authors and we will be sharing videos, photos and other great things. So stay tuned — this is just the start of many great things we have in the works for 2015!
