Gary Drury Publisher was established to aid novice and intermediate poets and writers get their feet across the threshold of a publisher’s door. All too often the situation is that a publisher will not consider unsolicited manuscripts not provided by an Agent. Thus, most Agents won’t represent a poet/writer without a publishing track record. With this catch-22 de lima, several talented poets/writers finally throw in the towel. The frustration of a rejection letter after rejection letter (no matter how elegant and politely it’s written) gets to the better of struggling poets/writers.


That’s where Gary Drury Publisher differs. I produce a solid line of soft/hard bound editions. Catering not only to the novice/intermediate poet/writer. The publics need for fresh and talented originating artist. Many first time poets/writers manuscripts appear across my desk. Though I accept a nominal amount of new material — I do reject writings that I deduce to be unsavory, no literary value, or blatantly pornographic. I have an obligation to my family of poets, writers and readers to filter out unsuitable work.


For the most part, books may be read by anyone of any age without concern of offensive language or content. Though, there are rare occasions, where I believe a work needs to be publish. There are instances when a creative piece is more factional then fiction. When I elect to publish such a piece a disclaimer is added to provide notice for my sensitive readers.
