Old Mountain Press  will publish a collection of poetry by a number of poets.  Our goal is to gather enough quality poems and short shorts for an estimated 50 to 90 page book with the theme to go with the cover (to your right):  Anything relating to the Mountains: people, places, town, attitudes, landscape, outdoors recreation or winter.  Basically, anything with a mountain flavor. Would like to have as many poets involved as possible.  Requirements are below. Authors receive publishing credit and retain all rights to their work but agree to the inclusion of their poem in this collection of poetry.
  • Author must have rights to the poem (previously published OK, but not in an OMP anthology).
