Austin Macauley

Here at Austin Macauley we have faith in all of our publications and treat each of them as a potential success. We are keen to open up the world of publishing at a time when many publishers are turning their backs on untried authors, and when the lure of self-publishing seems to provide writers with control, but at an exorbitant cost and with every chance of being lost in the crowd.

Autumn House Press

Autumn House is a 501c3 (nonprofit) corporation which has the mission of publishing poetry and other fine literature. We are committed not just to publishing the prominent writers of our age, but also to publishing first books and lesser-known authors who will become the important poets of their generation. In the belief that a book is not only a readable text but also an object of art, the press is dedicated to producing beautifully designed, well-manufactured books on acid-free paper, as well as electronic texts of comparable quality.

Awst Press

We publish impressive work from diverse voices. We depend on established writers to curate chapbook series mixing up the authors within their series based on gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, genre, etc. We may publish additional work such as via an essay series online. Book projects are published when they can be adequately supported and fit with the aesthetics and quality of the press. Authors who have been published previously by us are preferred, but other authors may be solicited for manuscripts as well.
