Ampersand Books

We are after writing the major publishing world would leave behind - the difficult, the strange, the unspoken. We are after beauty and grace. Our authors are young, full of spit and verve, most publishing for the first time. We have no preconceived notions of what kinds of writing we are interested in publishing; sometimes our choices surprise even ourselves. However, we are extremely uninterested in genre fiction and social issues.

Anchor & Plume Press

We would like to see work that is a celebration of language and place, work that is smart & thoughtful, work that explores the intersection of the personal & the geographic. We welcome your mighty yawps, your whisperings, your exquisite imaginings. We want to explore your landscapes, your universal yet distinct themes and characters in work that brings something of that place and what it means to be human to the surface.

Another New Calligraphy

ANC lives light, small, and local. We believe that creating art in mass quantities lessens its value and cheapens its spirit. ANC is also touchy-feely. We believe that nothing can replace the satisfaction of holding something beautiful in your hands. We like technology, but we like pretty things better.
