Our Mission

Belle Point Press is a literary small press from Fort Smith, Arkansas.
Our mission is simple: stick around and read.


Our Books

Since publishing our first book (an anthology) in September 2022, we have expanded into chapbooks and full-length titles in all genres. Currently, Belle Point Press releases 12-15 books a year across poetry, fiction, and nonfiction plus our ongoing Prose Series of pamphlet-length essays and short stories.


Our History

Our press was founded by Michael and Casie Dodd, a book-loving husband-and-wife team after settling along the OK-AR border. Raised in eastern Oklahoma with roots older than living memory in the Natural State, we're ardent supporters of small presses, independent literature, and our local community. We are a family-owned and -operated business, working from home with two young children. Belle Point Press is a proud member of the Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA) and the Community of Literary Magazines and Presses (CLMP).
