Floating Bridge Press Blog

Welcome to our new blog!

Floating Bridge Press is a 501(c)(3) non-profit literary arts organization, founded in 1994. Our mission is to recognize and promote the work of Washington State poets, through an annual Poetry Chapbook Award; the production of archival-quality chapbooks, anthologies, and broadsides; as well as community poetry readings.
We are a volunteer-run, community-supported arts organization; contributions are welcome, and tax-deductible.
We have also been supported, in part, by grants from the Allen Foundation for the Arts, Allied Arts Foundation, the 4Culture (formerly Cultural Development Authority of King County), the City of Seattle Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs, SAFECO Corporation, the Breneman Jaech Foundation, and the Washington State Arts Commission.

For more information, write to us at Floating Bridge Press, c/o Richard Hugo House, 1634 Eleventh Avenue, Seattle, WA 98122; or send email.

See our website too:
We will be working to couple our website and blog to make both more accessible and communal.
