Listing Details

  • About Ahsahta Press, a not-for-profit literary publisher, was founded at Boise State University to preserve the best works by early poets of the American West, including many underpublished women poets.

    Ahsahta Press seeks out and publishes the best new poetry from an eclectic range of aesthetics—poetry that is technically accomplished, distinctive in style, and thematically fresh. In 2001, a generous donor made it possible for Ahsahta to establish the Sawtooth Poetry Prize, an award for a book-length collection of poetry judged by a poet of national repute.
