Solo Press has been publishing poetry since 1966. Its first magazine, Café Solo, was released by founder and publisher, Glenna Luschei in 1969. Since then, Solo has gone on to publish four literary magazine series: Café Solo, Solo, Solo Café, and Solo Novo.

Solo launched the Solo journal series in 1996. Jackson Wheeler and David Oliveira anchored the editorial team that produced seven issues across eight years. Poet artists illustrated Solo covers for each of the seven-issue series that concluded its run in 2004.

Solo Café offered poetry readers annual journals with a variety of themes and formats. Some journals featured collaboration and others worked as anthologies. The most recent Solo Café, Teachers and Students, was released in late 2010.

Solo Novo: Wall Scrawls launched in 2011. Solo Novo: 122 Days was released in July, 2012.

Solo has a history of publishing chapbooks featuring poets who have already published in a Solo journal. Solo poets should submit a query letter and send a manuscript only on request.
