About Foundlings Press and the Wallace Award
Foundlings Press is a literary publisher devoted to presenting, in print, the best writing. While the core of the Foundlings Press title list will always be devoted to contemporary poetry, the press also actively seeks and regularly publishes exceptional nonfiction, journalism, memoir, literary criticism, visual material, lyrics, and hybrid prose and verse works that defy categorization.
Foundlings Press began accepting submissions for its first chapbook competition in fall 2017, and released the winning title, Lytton Smith’s My Radar Data Knows Its Thing, designed by guest book artist Stephen Fitzmaurice, in March 2018. Later that summer the press rededicated its annual contest in honor of Wallace “Wally” Canham, Art Director Darren Canham’s canine companion and the Foundlings mascot.
