Publishers Working with BookBoro

39 West Press


39 West Press is an independent book publisher committed to releasing books that encourage critical thinking and promote constructive discourse on key social, cultural, political, and economic issues affecting life in the U.S. We publish books of art, poetry, literary fiction, and creative non-fiction, thereby promoting a diverse range of experiences and voices, including but not limited to people of color, gender diversity, people with disabilities, LGBTQIA, as well as ethnic and cultural minorities.

7.13 Books


Run by authors for authors, 7.13 Books is committed to making beautiful works of literary fiction and offering a publishing experience that’s respectful to and even reverent of first-time authors.

As traditional literary publishing contracts, 7.13 Books is part of a vibrant independent press ecosystem that is passionate about keeping literature alive and saving quality manuscripts that have fallen through the widening cracks of a backsliding, inefficient book industry.

About Place Journal


About Place Journal (APJ) is the arts publication of the Black Earth Institute (BEI). APJ is published semi-annually with each issue on a specific theme chosen by the issue editor, one of the current BEI Fellows. Some of our recent themes have been Rewilding: Recovery, Remembrances, and Reconnection with the Ancestral Wild edited by Tammy Gomez; Political Landscapes edited by Taylor Brorby; South edited by Ann Fisher-Wirth; Animals Among Us edited by Todd Davis; and Reimagine Everything Differently :: Harambee edited by Mettta Sama.



Since 1972, AGNI has brought its readers the best national and international writing from established as well as emerging writers. In 2001 PEN America awarded Founding Editor Askold Melnyczuk its lifetime achievement award for magazine editing, saying, “Among readers around the world, AGNI is known for publishing important new writers early in their careers… AGNI has become one of America’s, and the world’s, most significant literary journals” and “a beacon of international literary culture.” Ha Jin (1999 National Book Award), Jhumpa Lahiri (2000 Pulitzer Prize), and Susanna Kaysen (Girl, Interrupted) are but a few who appeared in our pages first or early on, alongside already famous names such as David Foster Wallace, Sharon Olds, and Seamus Heaney.

Akashic Books


Akashic Books is a Brooklyn-based independent company dedicated to publishing urban literary fiction and political nonfiction by authors who are either ignored by the mainstream, or who have no interest in working within the ever-consolidating ranks of the major corporate publishers.

Alexandria Quarterly


At Alexandria Quarterly we hope that each issue acts as a healing art, a question without an answer, a celebration of unanswered questions, and a good long thought shared among friends—all of whom believe that there is magic in our stories, our photographs, our paintings, our music

Founded by Dan Curley at the University of Illinois, Ascent is a collection of fiction, poetry and essays that provokes and entertains the head as well as the heart. Now housed at Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota, and edited by W. Scott Olsen, each issue features dramatic poetry, thoughtful essays, and fiction with a solid narrative. We publish as many first-time authors as well-known names. We promise good company to our authors, and work that matters to our readers. Now in our 37th year with a full history of honors, we have no rules except the belief that literature can transform the world, one reader at a time. We hope you’ll join us.
