rinky dink press (rdp) is on a mission to get poetry back in the hands (and pockets) of the people. To date, we’ve published over 80 single-author micro-collections in microzine form, each priced at $1. Not only are we curating socially resonant poetry, we’re publishing it in a DIY container, one that resists the status quo and the rules of the establishment, one that’s redefining indie publishing within the world of poetics.

Visit our submission page for more information about our reading periods and guidelines.
