Prolific Press has breathed new life into Haiku, 3 liners and poetry generally and having been part of its Innovation is a pleasure.
I thoroughly appreciated my experience of publishing my chapbook with Glenn and Prolific Press. The entire experience from initial acceptance to book delivery at my doorstep was friendly, supportive, clear, and honest. After purchasing books from many different small presses, I chose to submit my work to Prolific Press based on the quality of the books they produce. They have a genuine care and interest in the books and the authors.

Always great to work with Prolific Press. I've had the pleasure of being published twice by Three Line Poetry, and I am quite pleased. Thanks!
When you’re a writer, you come across some of the big bad guys in the publishing industry—people who never respond to your pitch, don’t read your manuscript, talk down to you, or who are simply unprofessional.
My experience with Prolific Press has been precisely the opposite. Glenn and April are consummate professionals, probably because they are writers themselves. They know the industry because they are part of it on all sides. Their respect of both the craft and the business is evident in the quality of their publications.
Prolific Press consistently publishes some of the very best haiku to be found. I am grateful for their expertise in selecting the best of the best for publication in Haiku Journal, and always look greatly forward to receiving the print edition in my mailbox.
I have them all!
I'm a reader and I'm hooked. I have all the journals except 3 or 4 of the earlier Haiku Journals...Other than that, I have them all. I love reading all the journals Prolific Press offers. Inwood Indiana is probably my favorite, but Jitter and Dual Coast Magazine are definitely up there. If I had to offer criticism it would be that overseas shipping has been a little expensive but that is probably out of their control. A long time ago, I decided to pick a press and support them. I chose Prolific Press because they produce Poetry Quarterly and everyone knows that journal. They have never let me down. Every issue is delivered on time, the quality is great and they even send me a free gift once in a while. I love Prolific Press!

I submitted my manuscript to Prolific Press. Even though they did not accept my book, they gave me feedback. It was clear they read my work carefully. I will submit again.
budding and seasoned poets
are published alike
Glenn is super fast, efficient, produces great products and artwork. He is affable and courteous as well, unlike many editors. I recommend highly.
I have very much enjoyed my experience with Prolific Press-Three Line Poetry to be exact. They are one of the few publications who don't charge submission fees and the paperback issues are beautiful! They also pay a token payment to writers that they publish, which is much appreciated in this day and age of widespread expectation that writers should remain satisfied with working/writing for free. Kudos to Prolific Press!
Prolific Press has been great to work with. A quick response time, the opportunity to review proofs (that looked like what I expected), publication on schedule, painless payment and discounted author copies--everything I want from professionals who believe in what they're doing.
Prolific Press has given me an opportunity to share my voice and I will always be grateful to them. It is an honor to share ink with all the talented poets they promote.
My experience with Prolific has been wonderful, outstanding and extremely professional. April and Glenn are so talented, dynamic editors, hardworking, creative and so responsive. The quality of all of their publications is superb. I cant say enough wonderful things!
Having published 20+ pieces of writing across the web (and in print) I can say confidently that Prolific Press is a great place to submit. I've had two stories published in Jitter Press issues and the process was smooth for each. It's fantastic to work with such dedicated people!
I had no problems with the Prolific Press and my submission was reviewed within a few weeks. Thank you.
I love the attention given by the staff at this journal from the start of my submission to the acceptance of my poem. I also love the journal.
What a wonderful, professional experience for a first-time published poet. I hope to have success, obviously, but I also hope all experiences are as wonderful as this one. Thank you!
I started submitting poetry to Prolific Press in 2015 and have been published in Poetry Quarterly, Dual Coast Magazine, Inwood Indiana and Three Line Poetry. I trust Glenn’s judgement and care with my work. The quality and design of the journals have been first rate.
Glenn also hosts many helpful videos on the website on how to write poetry. Through these videos I have tried 3 line poetry and haiku for the first time.
Prolific Press supports writers at any stage of their career and I recommend them whole-heartedly. Glenn and his team are warm, personable and very easy to work with. Thank you!
I started submitting to Prolific Press this year and they have been exceedingly kind and generous to me. I am grateful for their support and encouragement. I highly recommend their publications for both submissions and a very good read!
This is the third acceptance I've had from Prolific, and I've found it a pleasure to deal with them: They're prompt (the most recent acceptance came three hours after I submitted), communicative and issue a good product.
I've worked with many small presses and I was impressed by Jitter Press's professionalism. They were extremely responsive, offered a very quick turnaround and provided plenty of assistance and feedback. I would definitely work with them again.
This is my first interaction with Prolific Press/Jitter Press and so far I've found it quick, efficient and most importantly of all, favorable. From the bottom of my heart to the top, Thank You!
I was extremely impressed by the professionalism and diligence of April Zipser and Glenn Lyvers, who edited my submission to Jitter (Issue #5) and weren't satisfied until every detail was right.
Jitter is a phenomenal horror publication, one that with any luck will someday be among the all-time greats. I appreciate the opportunity of having something I wrote appear in its pages.
I consider myself an aspiring horror writer. I submitted [to] Jitter Press. They came back to me and told me my story had been selected. Since then, communication has been top, the edits they made to my text were completely in line with the sense of my story.
It is a pleasure to work with Glenn and April, who show a personal interest in both the author and author's work. Prolific Press may bill itself as a small press, but it has a very large heart.

When my poem was accepted to Poetry Quarterly, I did my research. That lead me to Prolific Press. The deeper I dug the more excited I was to have a piece published in Poetry Quarterly.
Glenn Lyvers and staff is fast, friendly, and the print will make you proud.
I waited to give this review until I'd received the issue my poem was published in. No complaints. Take it from me, I'm hard to please.
Glenn Lyvers, April Zipser have an unerring instinct for the poetry and prose, which will make important contributions to and have a lasting impact upon, today's art and literature. Besides publishing the work of established writers, Prolific Press insures that readers will see a wealth of offerings from exciting emergent talent.
The barre is set high and will continue to rise thanks to the dedication and passion of Glenn and April [Prolific Press]. Heartfelt appreciation from an author who is among your most avid readers
It has been my great pleasure to be included within the pages of Prolific Press Publications. Their eye for quality is unsurpassed. Thank you for including me within your pages of beautifully expressed moments.
Of the various publishers that have accepted my poems over the last few years, none has been as supportive, responsive and professional as Prolific Press. They are always quick to answer any concerns I might have, their book design always puts the writing first, and the selected works are invariably thought provoking and original. I look forward to the release of each issue, and particularly enjoy the cover art of 50 Haikus and 3 Line Poetry. Thanks for all your hard work!
I've been working with prolific press since my first day as a published poet. It is because of their loyal dedication to creativity that I always feel at home here.
Working with Prolific Press has been a wonderful experience. I appreciate their professionalism, timely communications, and support. I'm delighted my short fiction story "Fractured" found a home with Inwood Indiana. Continued success to the Prolific Press family and all the writers they support.
