Adonis Designs Press is a small independent book publisher based in Phoenix, Arizona and previously in the land of Lincoln in Springfield, Illinois, hometown to poets Vachel Lindsay and Robert Fitzgerald. Our mission is to bring to print the poetry, art and words of those who we feel need to have their voice and words in print to the benefit of others.
What We Publish
We publish nonfiction and poetry books.
Poetry submissions are only accepted in conjunction with the James Alexander MacDonald Poetry Book Award and the teen anthology Navigating the Maze.
The nonfiction books we like to publish fall into our areas of interest including: self-help, how-to, travel, dogs, spirituality, art, photography, inspiration and gardening.
Memoir submissions are not accepted at this time.
With that being said, we are eclectic in taste and always looking to support those that we feel need to have their words or art in print to the benefit of others.
