About Our Company
Q: What is your company philosophy?
A: We believe that poets work better under a spirit of approval rather than criticism. To that end if we do not accept your poem you simply won't hear from us, and you are welcome to give it another try with a different poem. We do not send rejection slips. We hold to the idea that most submissions are genuine efforts and treat them as such. We believe that poetry is undervalued in our society and wish to help poets get the recognition they deserve for their contributions. Indeed, poetry is the Cinderella of the Arts; and ours is an everyday challenge to help her find her glass slipper.

Q: How long has Famous Poets been around?
A: Going on eighteen (18) years now. We've held twelve (12) conventions where poets have come to be together and share their love for poetry.
About Our Anthologies
Q: How many anthologies have you published?
A: We have published over 15 titles over the years. Our current title publishes more than once in a year now.
Q: Can I purchase an anthology later in a store?
A: We do not market the anthologies but a store may order directly from us. We
recommend pre-publication ordering. We try to print enough based on pre-publication
orders to keep costs down so if you think you may want a book order early, even
a small downpayment will guarantee you a book. After publication we go through
any extras very quickly.
