Let’s publish your poetry.

Navigating the world of poetry publishing can be difficult. Exhausting. Overwhelming. But it doesn’t have to be.

It can be enjoyable. Exciting. Fun!

At Argyle Fox Publishing, we go out of our way to answer your questions and make the publishing process simple and enjoyable.

Though we’re a small company, we use the same software, printers, and distributors as the big guys who charge $3,000 or more. Founded by Cleveland, Tennessee, writer Daniel (D.K.) Brantley, we know what writer and poets want, so we do things a bit differently.

We don’t work with templates.

We don’t have hidden fees.

We don’t make promises we can’t keep.

Instead, we treat you like we want to be treated.

Pressed Petals by Maverick L. Malone

“Daniel took care of everything from start to finish. He was patient and gracious with my many, many changes . . . was quick to reply . . . and was a bit of a Gandalf with his wise, sage advice. Argyle Fox will, without a doubt, bring your book to life.”

—Maverick L. Malone, Author of Pressed Petals
