Gyroscope Press is the small press side of Gyroscope Review poetry magazine. Our mission is to print chapbooks from primarily those authors identifying as women over the age of 50. Some women don’t get settled into their craft until 50, 60, or beyond. Gyroscope Press wants to give a publishing opportunity to these underrepresented voices. We welcome both emerging poets who’ve never published a chapbook, to established poets looking to publish new work.

Paperback and ebook options are available. We publish primarily through Amazon. Submissions are extremely limited to give each chapbook the attention it deserves. Our preference is fine, contemporary poetry, but we’ll look at other forms and ideas. 

We Use Submittable

All submissions to Gyroscope Press must be made via Submittable. We do not accept submissions via post or email.


March 5, 2022 – April 5, 2022

Note: Once we have accepted our submissions limit, the reading period will close, so submit early.
