Over the last decade there has been a sea change in poetry publication. Small presses that once were typically letterpress and offset productions have shifted to digital print, print-on-demand, and electronic publication. One aspect of this shift is the increase in self-publishing. Not only do major publishing houses comb self-published works to purchase rights, but self-publishing in its own right has become an accepted mode detached from the old concept of vanity publication.
