We publish writers whose voices need to be heard. These include writers with unconventional stories who express social and cultural realities not often in the public eye, new poets and personal essayists, teenagers, incarcerated youth and adults, the children of gangsters and others who live between the cracks of "normal" experience, and a host of others.
We publish adult and youth fiction, narrative nonfiction, and poetry, and anthologies that emerge from our community-based projects. We publish printed books, e-books, and chapbooks, and feature emerging writers on our website.
Our mission includes creating an arena for writers to share their voices and build bridges across communities through the written and spoken word. We lead community-based writing workshops to nurture and allow unheard voices to emerge. Some of our publications originate from these workshops.
100% of the proceeds from our publications, after costs, go directly into our community-based writing programs.
We support independent bookstores. You can order our print books from local bookstores and the public library. Also available at online bookstores and on Kindle.
