Crab Orchard Series in Poetry

The Crab Orchard Series in Poetry began in 1998 as a copublishing venture of the Crab Orchard Review literary journal (published by the English department at Southern Illinois University) and Southern Illinois University Press with a mission to publish some of the best new work by established and new voices in American poetry. Each fall, the Crab Orchard Review sponsors an open competition for poetry manuscripts; the winners are then published in the series the following fall. Each spring, the journal chooses a manuscript for their First Book Award as well as an editor’s selection. These manuscripts are then published the following spring.

Series Editor,  Allison Joseph
