Parka Books

At Parka we believe that the people who create books should be the first to make a profit. Our goal is to create a new kind of publisher: a digital press that eschews the old model. Rather than invest heavily on paper printing, we digitally publish books at a fraction of the cost and make sure authors and readers share the savings. We believe that authors have a right to own and control their work. Our deals are only for the digital rights for a book, leaving authors open to pursue traditional book deals. We are interested in publishing great books by dedicated authors.

Parlor Press

We are especially interested in collections that use language to dramatize a singular vision of experience, a mastery of craft, a deep knowledge of poetic tradition, and a willingness to take risks. The series is oriented toward free verse, but we will happily consider other forms.
