The Crumpled Press

Welcome to The Crumpled Press. Liberated from the waste and uncrumpled to inspire: this is The Crumpled Press. We publish original work by new authors and provide a space for established writers to say something new. Our titles stand out as contributions to contemporary thought, politics, and style. We aim to create an audience for good writing instead of packaging writing for a target audience. We perish to publish.

theNewerYork Press

We publish short experimental fiction paired with art. We like weird forms of literature: letters, receipts, lists, flash-fiction, and other literary absurdities. We do not publish any stanza-form poetry whatsoever.

We enjoy short but challenging pieces (FIVE PAGES OR LESS). Short-forms do not offer enough room to bore the reader, this allows the writer to be ridiculous or overly intense.

Our books are measured to fit in Levi’s back pockets and printed on high-quality, sustainable paper-stock. We are reader supported on Kickstarter and post stories on our website daily.

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).
