Brick Road Poetry Press

poetry made to entertain, amuse, and edify

The mission of Brick Road Poetry Press is to publish and promote poetry that entertains, amuses, edifies, and surprises a wide audience of appreciative readers.  We are not qualified to judge who deserves to be published, so we concentrate on publishing what we enjoy. Our preference is for poetry geared toward dramatizing the human experience in language rich with sensory image and metaphor, recognizing that poetry can be, at one and the same time, both familiar as the perspiration of daily labor and as outrageous as a carnival sideshow.

We are an independent poetry press based in Columbus, GA.

Georgia & Alabama Poets

Although we publish poets from anywhere in the world, one of our passions is publishing and promoting the outstanding and emerging poets of the states of Georgia and Alabama.

Mischief, Sarcasm, Surprise, and Humor

Our selections are often motivated by whether we are amused and entertained by the poetry.  Sure, we appreciate meditative stuff as well, but wit gets our attention fast.

Thematic Works

When a poet produces a thematically cohesive collection of poetry that startles us with the effectiveness of the work as a whole, we express our admiration by publishing the book.
