TLDR: we no longer publish chapbooks. we have online magazines, essay series and a podcast. we prioritize work by women, IBPOC, 2SLGBTQIA, disabled and gender nonconforming writers and artists.
Established in 2007, AngelHousePress publishes ragged edges, raw talent and rule breakers who push the boundaries of poetry. DevilHouse is our prose imprint (2013-2018). AngelHousePress is a home for non conformists and those whose voices are underrepresented. We publish NationalPoetryMonth.ca, an online magazine that has a new issue every April to celebrate boundary breaking poetry, visual poetry and hybrid work by writers and artists all over the world. Experiment-O is our annual pdf magazine celebrating the art of risk with poetry, prose, art and visual poetry. The Small Machine Talks is our monthly poetry podcast co-hosted by Amanda Earl and Ottawa poet, a.m. kozak. For two years AngelHousePress offered a free close reading service for new women and gender non binary poets.
The Angel In The House is a Victorian concept and poem about a very weak and mindless woman whose sole responsibility was to be charming. Perhaps you can see the irony.
The editor of AngelHousePress is Amanda Earl, a polyamorous poetesse, vispoet, fiction-eer and editrix who has been publishing her work since 2001 and editing poetry and prose since 2003/2004.
We acknowledge that we operate on traditional and unceded territory of the Algonquin Anishnaabeg people.
From 2007 to spring of 2019, AngelHousePress published chapbooks, but is now concentrating on its online magazines and initiatives. A new project is a collaborative map of women and gender non conforming visual and concrete poets. Please click here as artists add their names, locations and info to the map. This initiative aims to help make visible the amazing women and gender non binary artists creating visual and concrete poetry today. Too many of them are erased and unpublished because of white patriarchal attitudes. Another recent initiative is a directory of women and gender non conforming visual poetry publishers, editors and curators, which you will find in the essay section of this site.
If you are a IBPOC, 2SLGBTQIA, disabled writer or artist, a woman or gender nonbinary writer or artist, please know that your work is both welcomed and prioritized here.
