Published Books

We carefully consider submissions during our reading period on a case-by-case basis, mindful that the work we create should challenge and expand the current discourse about Caribbean literature and identity.

Poinciana Paper Press is a small press producing handmade and limited edition chapbooks that promote fresh perspectives about the Caribbean. Our library includes short poetry collections, single short stories, art catalogues, collaborative projects, and anthologies, all bound in structures that contribute to the storytelling process.

 

Poinciana Paper Press is not a print-on-demand operation—we carefully consider submissions during our reading period on a case-by-case basis, mindful that the work we create should challenge and expand the current discourse about Caribbean literature and identity. We seek stories and projects of a dynamic and experimental nature that would benefit from an interactive vessel using book binding, letterpress, handmade paper or printmaking techniques, and work closely with authors and artists to bring the final book collection to its own unique life.

 

The reading period and calls for work for Poinciana Paper Press is closed for 2015 as it works to revamp and rebrand its space in Nassau.
