Flutter Press

Flutter Press prefers free verse poems that delve deep into honest, sometimes dark human emotions, experiences, revelations, and relationships (past or present) with undercurrents of surrealism. We are also intrigued by the paranormal world.

Folded Word

Folded Word is an independent literary press specializing in collected short works and regional voices. We love manuscripts of place; we love manuscripts of time; we love voices that take a chance. Please be aware that we are a micro-press, which means we take great care in the production of a very limited list of print (chap)books each year. It also means our authors must take an active role in promoting their titles. Authors need not be US residents. We distribute globally.

Found Press Media

Found Press is a digital short-story publisher. Our titles are available for purchase through Kobo, Kindle, and our website. Every three months we release a handful of stories in Found Press Quarterly. Unlike traditional short-writing collections, FPQ features pieces that are produced, promoted, and—most notably—sold as stand-alone works. We strongly feel that short-story writers deserve as much recognition as authors of full-length books, and our unique publishing model gives us the freedom to help our authors reach as broad an audience as possible.
