Argos Books

Arte Publico Press

F  NF  P

From its beginnings on the artistic fringe during the Hispanic Civil Rights Movement to its current status as the oldest and most accomplished publisher of contemporary and recovered literature by US Hispanic authors, Arte Público Press and its imprint, Piñata Books, have become a showcase for Hispanic literary creativity, arts and culture. To address this need, Kanellos founded the Revista Chicana-Riqueña in Gary, Indiana, in 1972. This quarterly magazine for Latino literature, art and thought eventually evolved into The Americas Review, which won praise and recognition from The New York Times, Small Press Review and numerous other publications nationwide. It was the recipient of the 1986 and 1987 Citations of Achievement from the Coordinating Council of Literary Magazines. After 25 years of launching the careers of numerous Latino authors, The Americas Review published its final issue, Volume 25, Numbers 1-4, in 1999.In 2009, Arte Público Press received a grant from the Kellogg’s Foundation to launch the Latino Children’s Wellness Program—an outreach program whose mission is to expand access to important health and nutrition information through lively and engaging bilingual children’s books. The books are distributed to low-income children residing in urban and rural areas by partnering organizations.Publishing twenty five to thirty books each year, Arte Público Press is David to New York publishing industry Goliaths. However, because of its cultural sensitivity to its writers and the experiences they write about, along with a vision for the role of Hispanic literature in the United States, the Press has demonstrated that size (or lack of it) is not proportionately related to success in the commercial book market.

Astrophil Press

F  NF  P

Astrophil Press was founded in 2008. We are dedicated to publishing innovative literary work. We publish work that is fertile in imagination and mind—literary art that many major presses and independent presses overlook. Astrophil is interested in writing that grows out of an understanding of its lineage and seeks to work out of that lineage by actively breaking boundaries.What we publish: Fiction: Astrophil Press publishes fiction that defies genre, but does not ignore it. It is work that is at once playful but striking. Poetry: Astrophil Press focuses on poetry that tells a story either through image or sound. Poetry that does not try to disrupt, but teaches its readers how to read and participate in its journey.Critical: Astrophil Press is interested in Literary Criticism that focuses on contemporary authors or authors who have been overlooked by popular trends of the past and present. Although there are three genres listed, we will not limit ourselves to genre. Astrophil Press is interested in dialogic work that defies boundaries and redefines writing.

Atelier26 Books


Atelier26 is an independent publisher in Portland, Oregon that exists to demonstrate the powers and possibilities of literature through beautifully designed and expressive books that get people listening, talking, and exchanging ideas. We believe that reading is far more than just another form of consumerism, that books are not static objects but living, thriving conveyances of human expression, thought, and emotion. We believe in literature as contemplation, conversation, and provocation. We believe books can foster community and cultural vitality. Finally, we believe in the reality of a literary public — writer, publisher, bookseller, librarian, teacher, reader — and we celebrate the dynamism and mystery of this public. Recognition
We’ve quickly become recognized for the excellence and idiosyncrasy of our titles, receiving honors from the PEN/Robert W. Bingham Prize (longlist), the PEN/Hemingway Award (finalist), the Balcones Fiction Prize (winner), and the Flann O’Brien Award (finalist) in addition to being lauded by many notable authors and cited on numerous Best of the Year lists. This year Graywolf Press Publisher Fiona McCrae selected Atelier26 Books for a 2019 Oregon Literary Fellowship. We are grateful to Literary Arts for funding this fellowship, and to the Oregon Community Foundation for past grant support.

Atlas Review Chapbooks

F  NF  P

The Atlas Review was founded in 2012 as a way to combat the institutional weight of the literary community. All submissions are vetted anonymously, allowing the work to stand above names, associates, and credentials. We believe that the strongest work will (and must) innately carry the most important elements of identity, elements that go beyond 75 word bios or accolades. Our work is who we are in the world.We want to carve a place of bold writing that isn’t pigeon-holed or written off as “experimental.” Whatever that means. It’s all an experiment, and we are in it. How you interpret your experience of all is what we’re after. Go ahead and scare us. We publish works in all genres, and are delighted by genre-bending in every way. We are committed to diversity—in representation, aesthetic, and theme. Has a chapbook series called TAR.
