Two Lines Press

Two Lines Press gives American readers the opportunity to read some of the great work from outside our borders that they would not otherwise get to see. As the barriers between cultures continue to come down and more authors find inspiration in foreign lands, there’s all the more reason for us all to read the world.
Two Lines Press endeavors to give readers another point of entry to this important international discussion—to see that great literature isn’t created by culture in which its produced but by the talent of the writer that produces it (and the translator that brings it to English).

Ugly Duckling Presse

We favor emerging, international, and “forgotten” writers with well-defined formal or conceptual projects that are difficult to place at other presses. We also offer several curated series: the Eastern European Poets Series (publishing translations of poetic works from that area); the Dossier Series (specializing in conceptual and investigative works); the Lost Literature Series (bringing back neglected works of the 20th century); and 6x6, a poetry magazine. Our releases often contain handmade elements, calling attention to the labor and history of bookmaking.
