About Vita Brevis Press

Vita Brevis Press Poetry Magazine

Vita Brevis Press is a bestselling small publisher dedicated to emerging and established poets. We publish Pulitzer and Pushcart prize winners right alongside brand new poets, circulating their work in an online magazine and physical anthologies. Our editor carefully curates paintings for every poem we publish, letting poets experience their work in a new way.

Vita Brevis Press has published two bestselling new-release poetry anthologies. The first anthology, Pain & Renewal, explores the highs and lows of the human experience. The second anthology, Brought to Sight & Swept Away, explores the many faces of time. A third anthology is forthcoming. Join the newsletter to get involved!


Founder & Editor: Brian Geiger

From Pulitzer-prize winners to emerging poets, I’ve had the privilege of meeting plenty of great artists through Vita Brevis. For many poets, the Vita Brevis Poetry Magazine is their first professional publication, and our Vita Brevis Anthology series has attracted the attention of many respected artists. With thousands of readers and two bestselling anthologies under our belt, it looks like Vita Brevis is here to stay.
