Terrapin Books is a small press for poetry books exclusively. Now 3 years old, the press has published 17 collections by single authors, 3 craft books, and 2 anthologies with a third in progress. Our mission is to present beautiful books of well-crafted poems. Our poets come from all parts of the country. We tend to favor lyric poetry but also seek variety. Work from our books has been featured on Poetry Daily, Verse Daily, and American Life in Poetry. Our books have placed in several after-publication contests and one won Best Poetry Book of the Year from the Virginia Poetry Society and another won the Whirling Prize for work about the disabled.
