Wesleyan University Press has an editorial program that focuses on poetry, music, dance, science fiction studies, film-TV, and Connecticut history and culture. Publishing in its current form since 1957, the press has published an internationally renowned poetry series, collecting five Pulitzer Prizes, a Bollingen, and three National Book Awards in that one series alone. The mission of the press is to develop and maintain a sound and vigorous publishing program that serves the academic ends and intellectual life of the university and beyond. 

In 2018 Wesleyan acquired titles published by Paris Press (1995–2018). Paris Press was founded with the mission of publishing groundbreaking yet overlooked literature by women and educating the public about its books and authors. Wesleyan is proud to keep these important books in print. 

Wesleyan titles are distributed by Hopkins Fulfillment Services.

 

New! Collected Poems of Lorenzo Thomas

New! Collected Poems of Lorenzo Thomas

“It is beautiful and amazing to have access to the vast range of invention, intensity, and surprise that Lorenzo Thomas’s poetry offers. His contribution is indispensable, immeasurable and—even now, even here—unbound.”
—Fred Moten

“Lorenzo Thomas is an essential poet of postwar America. His sumptuous poetic inventiveness is grounded in searing social consciousness. Through dazzling sound patterning and the deft interplay of conflicting voices and discourses, Thomas proves the necessity of aesthetic pleasure for waking us from the slumber of complacency.” —Charles Bernstein
