Evening Street Press

Evening Street Press is centered on Elizabeth Cady Stanton's Seneca Falls, 1848 revision of the Declaration of Independence: "that all men -- and women -- are created equal," with equal rights to "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." It focuses on the realities of experience, personal and historical, from the most gritty to the most dreamlike, including awareness of the possibilities of this new culture.
We publish perfect bound chapbooks, full-length poetry books, short novels, and the twice yearly literary journal Evening Street Review. See guidelines at eveningstreetpress.com.

Exterminating Angel Press

Exterminating Angel Press is a publishing project that brings together books of diverse subject matter joined by a unity of theme, intention, layout, and design. It is neither a commercial nor an academic project, though it has elements of both. As a whole, it is meant to be both a useful and a transformative work of art, contributed to by minds concerned with diverse disciplines, yet sharing a common vision and philosophy. We're interested in books that understand how/why story shapes culture, and how it can change culture.
