Red Moon Press was founded in 1993 as the publishing arm of the international journal South by Southeast. It was named for an apocalyptic song written by the owner of the press during his stint in Nashville as a singer/songwriter.
In 1996 RMP produced its first books: The Red Moon Anthology of English-Language Haiku 1996, which has endured as our signature series, and endgrain, an individual collection of work by Dee Evetts, which has become a minor classic.
Since those days RMP has produced more than 300 volumes: 25 years of the Red Moon Anthology series, 16 volumes of contemporary haibun, a dozen volumes of A New Resonance: Emerging Voices in English-Language Haiku, and scores of individual collections, theoretical and critical volumes, haiku-related novels and smaller anthologies. Our goal is to continue to publish the best in English-language haiku from around the world.
