Now that small and independent presses do more of the heavy lifting in the literary world than was once the case, a number of presses and literary journals have sought out innovative collaborations to enhance visibility, production, and reach. The editors of Copper Nickel, Gulf Coast, Milkweed Editions, Pleiades Press, and A Public Space discuss the goals, methods, and benefits of collaborative publishing projects, paying particular attention to their own collaborations currently underway.



Wayne Miller's most recent books are the poetry collection Post-, a cotranslation of Moikom Zeqo's Zodiac, and the essay collection Literary Publishing in the 21st Century (coedited with Travis Kurowski & Kevin Prufer). He teaches at the University of Colorado Denver, and he edits Copper Nickel.

Brigid Hughes is the founding editor of A Public Space and a contributing editor at Graywolf Press.

Kathryn Nuernberger is the author of The End of Pink, which won the James Laughlin Award from the Academy of American poets, and Rag & Bone. She is an associate professor of creative writing at University of Central Missouri where she also serves as the director of Pleiades Press.

Martin Rock is the author of Residuum, Editor's Choice for the 2015 CSU First Book Prize. With Kevin Prufer and Martha Collins he coedited the volume Catherine Breese Davis: On the Life and Work of an American Master. His website is martinrockpoetry.com.
