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.

Furniture Press Books

Furniture Press is a publisher of strangely poetical texts and ephemera, all which play at (but are not limited to) intertextuality and appropriation. Some want to call it poetry, but poetry can express many differing, sometimes conflicting and contradictory concepts. This is what we thrive on: the ambiguation of art and its likenesses. Our poetics follows this process closely, and we look for similar aesthetics in the writers we choose to publish and promote.
