Joel Allegretti is the author of two full-length collections from The Poet's Press: The Plague Psalms, which appeared in 2000 and is now in its third edition, and Father Silicon, selected by The Kansas City Star as one of 100 Noteworthy Books of 2006, a list that included novels by Thomas Pynchon and Cormac McCarthy. In March 2010 Poets Wear Prada published his third collection, Thrum, a chapbook of poems, prose poems and brief poetic essays about musical instruments. Raymond Hammond, editor of The New York Quarterly, calls Thrum "an intriguing and must read for anyone who has a sense of all that culminates in the commingling of the arts."

Allegretti's work has appeared in Art/​Life Limited Editions, Rattapallax, The New York Quarterly, Descant, The Laurel Review, Margie, and Confrontation among many other journals, as well as in the anthology Chance of a Ghost (Helicon Nine Editions, 2005) which included work by Billy Collins, Rita Dove and James Tate. His poem in that collection received an Honorable Mention in the 2006 edition of The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror from St. Martin's Press.
