Verse Chorus Press


Verse Chorus Press is an independent publishing house founded in Portland, Oregon, in 1998 by Katherine Spielmann (†2016) and Steve Connell. It grew out of the music and arts magazine Puncture, which they edited from 1982 to 2000, and publishes books on music and pop culture, along with music-themed fiction. Since the birth of its Dark Passage imprint in 2012, VCP has also developed a strong line of crime fiction.

Verse Chorus and Dark Passage titles are distributed in North America by Publishers Group West/IPS, in Europe by Turnaround Publisher Services, and in Australia/NZ by New South Distribution.

Brief History
“Anglo-America’s preeminent radical press.”—Harper’s

“The scale of the achievement of New Left Review and Verso,
which turns forty this year, is now clear.”—Nation

“A rigorously intelligent publisher.”—Sunday Times

New Left Books was launched by New Left Review in 1970, and took as its logo the Tatlin Tower—a planned monument to the Third International. Focusing initially on translating works of European political and social theory, economics and philosophy, the list during that decade included Theodor Adorno, Louis Althusser, Walter Benjamin, Lucio Colletti, Henri Lefebvre, Georg Lukács, Ernest Mandel, Herbert Marcuse, Jean-Paul Sartre and Max Weber, as well as major original works by Perry Anderson, Terry Eagleton, Tom Nairn and Raymond Williams. NLB’s list challenged established opinions both in the United States and the Soviet Union, and their respective satellites, as well as providing important critical analyses of China, India and South America. The publishing house was always intended to be far broader in its reach than NLR. An early bestseller was Against Method by Paul Feyeraband.

Verso—the left-hand page—was launched as a paperback imprint at the end of the seventies. Since becoming NLB’s sole imprint, Verso has published landmark books by Tariq Ali, Benedict Anderson, Robin Blackburn, Robert Brenner, Judith Butler, Noam Chomsky, Alexander Cockburn, Mike Davis, Isaac Deutscher, Paul Feyeraband, Norman Finkelstein, David Harvey, Eric Hobsbawm, Fredric Jameson, Edward Said, Rebecca Solnit, Ellen Meiksins Wood, Erik Olin Wright and Slavoj Žižek. New translations have included Jean Baudrillard, Régis Debray, André Gorz, Jürgen Habermas, Rigoberta Menchú, Roberto Schwarz and Paul Virilio.

Voice of Witness

Voice of Witness (VOW) advances human rights by amplifying the voices of people impacted by injustice.
Our work is driven by the transformative power of the story, and by a strong belief that an understanding of crucial issues is incomplete without deep listening and learning from people who have experienced injustice firsthand.
Through our oral history book series and education program, we amplify the voices of people impacted by injustice, teach ethics-driven storytelling, and partner with human rights advocates to:
build agency within marginalized communities,
raise awareness and foster thoughtful, empathy-based critical inquiry and understanding of the crises they face,
and inform long-term efforts to protect and advance human rights.
Voice of Witness was cofounded by author Dave Eggers, writer & educator Mimi Lok, and physician Lola Vollen. Eggers originated the VOW book series with Vollen in 2005. In 2008, Lok transitioned Voice of Witness to a 501(c)(3) organization and established its education program.
For over ten years, VOW has illuminated human rights crises in the U.S. and globally. Our oral history book series has amplified hundreds of seldom-heard voices, including those of wrongfully convicted Americans, undocumented immigrants, and people in Burma, Zimbabwe, and Colombia.
Our education program serves over 20,000 people annually. Our oral history pedagogy has been used to train a broad range of advocates for human rights and dignity, including educators, writers, journalists, attorneys, and medical doctors.

VOW’s strategic vision planning process took place over nine months and involved Voice of Witness staff, board, and our extended community of thought partners: educators, narrators (people impacted by injustice who share their oral histories with VOW), content experts, and funders. By the beginning of 2018, we had created a comprehensive strategic vision and implementation plan to chart our growth and goals for the next five years.

Washington State University Press

We love our rural location and being so close to the stories we publish. The land grant school now known as Washington State University opened on a frigid winter morning in January 1892. Many students came from farms and were deeply grateful for the opportunity to receive any higher education. The institution grew and added a scholarly publishing division in the 1920s, primarily to distribute faculty research.

Harnessing a vision of revitalization and expansion in the late 1980s, the re-launched press began releasing titles centered on regional history. One of those, Renegade Tribe, was the first major work published on the Palouse Indians, and received the Washington State Book Award. Since then, Washington State University (WSU) Press has published over two hundred titles, and received numerous honors and awards.

Even though our books often focus on the past, we are excited about our future. We plan to continue publishing eight to ten books each year, and through a new series and partnerships, preserve and enrich the history surrounding the Hanford nuclear site.
