From the Pecan Grove Press guidelines:

Each of our books is an individual work of art by a poet and we hope it does not resemble any of the others. If you emulate one of those books, your chances of having your manuscript accepted are probably going to be diminished instead of improved. We think you should buy one (or even a complete set) of our books because you love poetry and not because you think you will learn some arcane secret that will improve your chances of having a PGP book. We happily publish books by poets regardless of their race, gender or other individual characteristics. Unfortunately, we rarely have time to comment on our response notes to poets.
