About C.N.P

Our philosophy is simple: We believe more poetry should exist in more places. We publish what we deem to be the best poetry--whether that be award-winning poets or a new writers first published work.

Our press is located in Portland, Oregon--but the poetry we publish has no geographic bounds. 

New poetry issues released online on the first of every month.

Chapbooks are available now from our shop!
