We publish the best work of each poet we sign, and give to each
ten free copies of the book, leaving the poet to go out in the world
to art galleries, museums, coffee shops, wherever poetry is read to
an audience, to read from their books, to sell their books, and to
pocket the money themselves. We do not send out review copies, or
hire distribution agents, or send out returnable copies of books to
All vanZeno books have a vanZeno Press ISBN number and are listed
in Books In Print. They will be available online through Amazon,
Barnes & Noble, and the vanZeno webpage. The poet is paid a royalty
for every book sold online. However, we believe that the way for the
poet to make the most money is by reading out in local venues.
This puts the money where it belongs: in the poet´s pocket.
Nobody is likely to get rich, but our purpose isn't money, it's
providing a way for deserving poets to get published.
