Q Ave Press


Q Ave Press publishes hand-bound chapbooks.  

We are devoted to publishing new writing, whether prose, poetry, or some combination of the two, new translations,  and books that incorporate visual art with writing.


on y est

la terre dans nos entrailles

la sphère

le goût du bonheur

la tortue s’aligne à la voix

le point

à la virgule       s’approcher


mais de quoi mais

de quoi

nous parlent les étoiles


                        here we are

                    the earth in our bowels

                    the sphere

                    the taste of happiness

                    the tortoise aligns itself with the voice

                    the period

                    with the comma          approach


                    but about what

                    about what

                    do the stars speak to us

We are proud of the authors we publish and want to share their work with as many readers as possible. We will present different poems by our writers on our home page periodically, so please check back frequently.

The following is a poem from the chapbook

I Was Afraid Of Vowels        Their Paleness


Stella Vinitchi Radulescu

(translated from the French by Luke Hankins)
