Storyline Leaf Logo-01Story Line is an imprint of Red Hen Press that publishes poetry with a focus on Formalism. Contemporary literary culture continually breeds new movements, but Story Line devotes itself to reviving and renewing the tried and true: poetry that rhymes, adheres to a form, is in verse.

Their publications include numerous books of poetry, both long and short, as well as criticism and analysis of Formalist movements and the people who drive them. Story Line seeks poets who understand and take advantage of the unique power of poetry within the restrictions of Formalism.
