About Jai-Alai Books

Based in Miami, FL, Jai-Alai Books publishes titles in a variety of genres. We are a small press under the umbrella of O, Miami, a non-profit organization that produces events and projects related to poetry. Our mission is to help foster a literary identity for Miami. We are two-time winners (2017, 2014) of the Knight Arts Challenge from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. To learn more about who we are and what we do, read our FAQ and our press page, in particular Poetry Foundation's interview with us, and browse the titles we've published.
