Want to be part of it all?

Are you a writer or artist looking to publish your work? Are you an editor looking for a home for a project? We’re looking for collaborators who fall into these categories (or maybe who don’t and have got something else up their sleeves). Generally speaking, we’re interested in publishing books, zines, and beyond. We’ve even published a few limited edition artist multiples before.

Specifically, we are also seeking new artists and poets for our line of Artists’ Books and Poetry Books. Are you a new or emerging voice who has never published a book? Or are you a veteran creative with years of experience under your belt? Doesn’t matter to us. All we care about is the work you make!

We tend to prefer work that is experimental in some way but we like more traditional shit too. The bottom line: if we like your work, we’re interested in developing a project and format that suits it. We’re not a one-size-fits-all kind of shop. We’re collaborative, creative, experimental, and always have a sense of style. If that sounds good to you, drop us a line and show us what you got!

There are currently no open calls. However, we will review proposals for specific projects. Please use our contact form to get in touch and tell us about your idea.
