Wings Press

Wings Press was founded in 1975. The mission of Wings Press is to publish the finest in American writing—meaning all of the Americas—without commercial considerations clouding the choice. Wings Press intends to produce multicultural books, chapbooks, Ebooks, and broadsides that enlighten the human spirit and enliven the mind. Good writing is, we believe, innovative, insightful, and interesting. But most of all it is honest. Wings Press is committed to treating the planet itself as a partner. Thus the press uses as much recycled material as possible.

Wiseblood Books

Wiseblood Books fosters works of fiction, poetry, and philosophy that render truths with what Flannery O'Connor called an unyielding "realism of distances." Such works find redemption in uncanny places and people; wrestle us from the tyranny of boredom; mock the pretensions of respectability; engage the hidden mysteries of the human heart, be they sources of either violence or courage; articulate faith and doubt in their incarnate complexity; dare an unflinching gaze at human beings as "political animals"; and suffer through this world's trials without forfeiting hope.

WordFarm

We love a good story--whether it's revealed in poetry, fiction or creative nonfiction. We are interested in fresh, fun, quirky voices. We are interested in work that explores spiritual themes, and we have a soft spot for writers who cannot get this kind of work accepted by "commercial" publishers.
