Publishers Working with BookBoro

What Books Press

F  P

What Books Press A NPO What Books Press was founded in 2009 by a small group of like-minded writers and artists in Los Angeles. We came together in order to get an outlet for groundbreaking fiction and poetry with extraordinary art on the cover. Since then we have published a list of titles by known and unknown authors, public readings, good reviews, awards, and general recognition have followed. Now, with grattitude and inspiration, we move forward, each year publishing works that thrill us with a bending of literary expectations, or a striking use of language, or a poignant position on our current human condition… or ideally all three. Welcome to our website, where we were invite you to dive in, explore, consider reading, consider submitting, and, to keep up to day, follow us on Twitter @whatbookspress.

Whiskey Tit

F  P

Whiskey Tit attempts to restore degradation and degeneracy to the literary arts. We are unwilling to sacrifice intellectual rigour, unrelenting playfulness, and visual beauty, often leading to texts that would otherwise be abandoned in a homogenised literary landscape. In a world gone mad, our refusal to make this sacrifice is an act of civil service and civil disobedience alike, and our work reflects this. We welcome like-minded readers and writers.
Let me elaborate…
I came to publishing in a peculiar way, reading a book serialized straight from the author in email, Jon Frankel’s The Man Who Can’t Die. You can read more about that experience here, but the gist is, and continues to be, me being absolutely floored by a book, only to discover it won’t get picked up by traditional publishers. This is usually because the works don’t fit neatly into genre/length/media packages. We proudly publish books that are too long or too short, books in which the authors insist upon no back cover blurbs, books whose best genre descriptions might be “comedy of terror,” “memnoir,” “randy seafaring misadventure,” or “low-tech noir.” We want to hear from you, honestly. If you have a wonderful book in need of a literary wet nurse, please contact us.

White Pine Press

F  P

Just as Persephone took a bite into that fateful pomegranate, The Bowhunter & The Taxidermist took a bite out of poetry, letting its oozing blood touch the soft lap of our lips before transferring ourselves into the great nexus.
We are here for the poetry, for poetry’s sake; for the emotive experience of language & form into the imaginatarium of the psyche. We humbly invite the dramatic, the strange, the deadly swirls of mythology & folklore, the magical expanse of the Otherworld that confounds us so. White Stag aims to bring forth the imagination in a way that impacts our readers & encourages the imagination of others to flourish.
Founded in 2013 & based in Phoenix, Arizona, White Stag publishes print anthologies, online journals, chapbooks, & full length poetry books. Our anthologies include a thematic element to help inspire writings from people of various backgrounds. Our catalog of poetry books may be small, but it is ferocious.
Email for any & all inquiries. Please do not send us unsolicited manuscripts.

We offer all bookstores 45% off retail price for 3 or more books – email to inquire.

Wild Ocean Press

F  P

Welcome to Wild Ocean Press
Wild Ocean Press is an independent publisher of poetry, memoir and fiction by writers who may not be widely recognized but should be. Much important literary work remains unpublished either because authors are unwilling to submit to the control and dictates of large corporate publishing machines or because those same corporate publishers do not anticipate generating enough revenue from a book regardless of literary merit.

Willow Springs Books

F  P

Willow Springs Books is a small literary press housed in Eastern Washington University’s MFA program in Spokane. The staff of WSB are mostly creative writing MFA students under the direction of poet Christopher Howell. As part of an internship, students gets hands-on experience with every part of the publishing process, from reading manuscripts to editing, designing, and marketing.
WSB (aka “The Press”) provides students with hands on publishing experience from acquisition to production to promotion. Each year we publish one collection of short fiction, selected from our student run Spokane Prize for Short Fiction, as well as two chapbooks of poetry. Over your two-year MFA experience interns will have the opportunity to acquire new manuscripts, edit, design, and promote up to seven books! We aim to publish high quality, award-winning literary fiction and American Surrealist Poetry, as well as design books that stand out among small and large presses alike.
Because the press is entirely student run, interns self-select their own projects, which means interns have the opportunity to tailor the internship to their areas of interest or professional desire. Former Managing Editors have gone on to work for literary magazines such as The Gettysburg Review, and interns have gone on to win awards for their design portfolios.
