Cloudbank Books was launched in 2000 with the publication of Millennial Spring: Eight New Oregon Poets, an anthology of contemporary verse, edited by Peter Sears and Michael Malan. Since then, we have published nine other books of poetry, including those shown on our Home Page. 

In 2009, the first issue of Cloudbank magazine was published. Each issue is 84 pages, perfect-bound with color art on the cover. Two or three book reviews are included in each issue, along with 65 pages of poetry and short prose.
