Middle Island Press

I am Christina. Having published many books by dozens of authors under the Middle Island Press imprint has been one of my most enriching literary endeavors. We began with saddle-stitched chapbooks and branched into perfect-bound print-on-demand poetry and short stories. Our books are available at Amazon, though our saddle-stitched titles are temporarily out of print.

We are edified by our Middle Island Press poets and the variety of poetry collections that we have moved from manuscript to print, from the minds of inspired poets to the hands of readers. Here you may learn a bit about them and view their titles by clicking on their names in the sidebar.

Furthermore, I would like to acknowledge a few people:

My Sweet Robert is the “final word” whose opinions I highly regard. He is an esteemed poet, bibliophile, artist, geometer, and former art director of one of America’s largest ad agencies of its time.

Hannah Minchow-Proffitt (M.A. in Communication from Drury University) resides on the West Coast and designs everything from books to announcements to t-shirts. If my clients have high-tech design needs, she is an expert in Adobe InDesign and Illustrator, and we know that she is the one who will be there with skill and diligence.

Hailing from the New Cumberland, WV–Greater Pittsburgh Area,
Gloria J. Wimberley, M.A., is a freelance editor who handles prose editing for Middle Island Press. With an English background combined with rare talent, she has a meticulous eye – and she pens some exquisite poetry!

From Princeton, we have
Salvatore Buttaci: retired English teacher, poet and Master of Flash Fiction. He is highly active in West Virginia’s literary scene and has been our key reviewer and promoter since 2010. For that we are grateful.

Middle Island Press serves the literary reading community with fresh poetry of the twenty-first century. It is the quality of our books that is our signature, and alongside our authors’ pristinely poetic words, it is that which makes our books well worth purchasing in support of living poets.
