Slope Editions was created by Ethan Paquin and Christopher Janke in 2001 with the same goal in mind as the online literary journal Slope - to present readers with a fine and eclectic array of poetry being written in English today. Each year, we release one to two well-chosen and stylistically diverse softcover, perfect-bound books and chapbooks that defy convention and categorization.

Slope Editions represents the first major print publishing offshoot of an established online literary journal. We are excited at this distinction, and at the possibilities before us in both e- and paper media. We also believe the Web to be the most convenient place for our audience to access and purchase our authors' work.

Among those who have taken note of our work are Publishers Weekly, Poets & Writers, PN Review, and other publications across the world. Our titles are distributed to the trade by SPD and Baker & Taylor.

Slope Editions is part of Slope Publishing Inc., a registered non-profit literary and educational organization with 501(c)(3) status. Contributions are welcome.
