About the Press

Half Day Moon Press showcases mini digital chapbooks by choice artists and poets. These are curated by Joseph S. Aversano and are made available for free. Only solicited manuscripts are considered for the time being until further notice.

For each title released, Half Day Moon Press arranges for tree saplings to be planted in Anatolia (the press' geographic home) in coordination with TEMA (The Turkish Foundation for Combating Soil Erosion). Thus far, we have had saplings planted in the following locations: 6 in Sivas Karşıyaka Memorial Forest; 3 in Antalya (devastated by fires in the summer of 2021) . . . .
