Mineral Point, Wisconsin, is a town of artists and makers in the Driftless region of Wisconsin — a landscape the glaciers never reached and flattened out, so it remains shadowed, hilly, ragged, and unexpected.

Brain Mill Press is pleased to publish the Mineral Point Poetry Series. In odd years, the series editor will select chapbooks for publication in this series. In even years, the series editor will select a full collection of poems by a single author. The series editor also solicits and reviews manuscripts outside these reading periods at her discretion.
