BASS RIVER PRESS
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In general, the press accepts only original, unpublished collections of poems between 48 and 64 pages.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 clicking on the images below, by calling 508-394-7100, or by visiting our Artisan Gallery Gift Shop.

From the Farther Shore: Discovering Cape Cod & the Islands Through Poetry
Alice Kociemba, Robin Smith-Johnson & Rich Youmans, Editors
Bass River Press, an Imprint of the Cultural Center of Cape Cod
This anthology's 118 contemporary poems meld the outer and interior landscapes of the Cape & Islands so that the reader discovers, as if for the first time, the spirit of a place that calls us home. Not only do these poems converse with one another, they are poems that could not have been written about anywhere else.
