Gyroscope Press is the small press side of Gyroscope Review poetry magazine. Our primary mission is to print chapbooks from 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. We will also take on other projects on a case-by-case basis, such as anthologies.

Paperback and ebook options are available. We publish through Amazon. Books can be found on Amazon or Biblio. 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.


July 15, 2023 – August 15, 2023

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