Editorial Policy

Los Nietos Press is looking for book-length works of poetry and/or short story. We are looking for work that is about the person, but also about place; work that sheds light on the author as well as, or in the context of, Southern California.

Our particular interest is the people and the place that fans out East and South from Los Angeles, away from the glitz and glamour of the West Side, into the vibrant working communities from East L.A. to Long Beach, from Santa Ana over to the historic cities of the Inland Empire.
