|History of Marick Press|
Marick Press is for-profit literary publisher, founded to preserve the best work by poets of the American Midwest, including many underpublished women poets.
Marick Press has expanded its scope, presenting the work of poets from across the nation whose work is selected through our national competition, the Marick Poetry Prize, or by general submission.
Marick Press seeks out and publishes the best new poetry from an eclectic range of aesthetics — poetry that is technically accomplished, distinctive in style, and thematically fresh. In 2008 Marick Press will establish the Marick Poetry Prize, an award for a book-length collection of poetry judged by a poet of national repute.
Through a B.A and a M.A. program in Journalism at Wayne State University, Marick Press permits graduate students enrolling in publishing courses the opportunity for hands-on experience in the daily business of a small press, including initial manuscript readings, pre-press production, and marketing tasks. An undergraduate internship is available each semester as well for qualified students.
