An interview with...Fowlpox Press

This is part of a series of interviews taking place with small press publishers. This interview series will be partially published online and partially in print, as a part of a nonfiction book to demystify publishing, published in January 2020 and written by Isabelle Kenyon.


Fowlpox Press is a publisher of fine poetry and art through its quarterly, Fowl Feathered Review, and chapbooks, both in Print On Demand and in electronic form. Launched in 2011, FP remains one of only a few small presses providing reading material for free or at cost. Virgil Kay is purportedly a rooster sporting a fez, as well as the editor of Fowlpox Press. When he isn't molting, he sulks.
