Pink Fish Press

  • We recognize that all writers are artists.
  • We believe there are multitudes of talented voices unheard by the
    big publishing industry as independent writers struggle against an ocean
    of outdated practices.
    We strive to shatter the stigma of "poor quality work" attached to independent authors.
    We work to bring undiscovered and gifted writers to the forefront of popular culture.
