The Cultural Center launched Bass River Press in 2015 to support local poets. It typically publishes one full-length collection by a Cape or Islands poet each year.
Bass River Press serves the dual function of promoting the works of local poets and engaging the community in the literary arts.
In general, the press accepts only original, unpublished collections of poems between 48 and 64 pages. Poets with previously published collections are eligible to submit, along with first-time poets. Visit our Call for Entries page for specifics.
Current titles are available for purchase by calling 508-394-7100 or visiting our Artisan Gallery Gift Shop.
