P&J Poetics was founded in 2013, to provide a new press for those who want books to be memorable, literate, and worthy of being read again and again.

Books are hitting the market now in new formats, e-books, audio books, professional blogs, all needing to compete with other aggressive markets, film, television, social media, pop ups. Despite these challenges, the written word must retain its core virtues, its magic, its open invitation, its silent exclusivity, its only limitations the limits of imagination. It is entertainment that challenges the mind one word at a time.

We are readers who want thought-provoking books, not merely competent, but artfully written, not merely readable, but obsessively driven. Books that are fun. And a little mad.  We hope you are, too.
