Red Shoe Press promotes the work of talented poets via various media, community arts events, and poetry readings to facilitate a rich exchange of poetic ideas and perspectives. The Press is a catalyst for poets to continue to learn from each other through sharing, encouragement and inspiration.

Our current project is the 2024 Oregon Poetry Calendar, gathering the work of Oregon poets into an attractive, 11" x 17" size wall calendar of expressive  poems paired with compelling photographs of wild birds found in Oregon. The Calendar will be published in August 2023.


This year’s theme is colors occurring in nature and in human-built objects or places. 

There is no submission fee. 

Current Oregon residents only. 

Don’t include your name or other identifying info on individual poems or in the document file name. 

No bio needed at the time of submission. Bios will be requested if your work is accepted for publication. 

No art or photo submissions needed. 

Deadline May 31, 2024. Responses sent by July 2024.
