Believing in literature’s practical ability to create sympathy and therefore a better world, Publishing Genius exists to make the best books by devoted members of the global literary community, and to make them in the most interesting and progressive ways.

The best submissions make us say, "Whoa, how did that get there?" We are less interested in form or even content than in the feeling of astonishment good writing evokes.

We’re focused on author development. If you have an idea, we want to hear about it. If you’ve already written something, but it’s sitting on a shelf idle, we want to help you finish and publish it. If you’ve never written a word, we’re here for you. We’re not just launching a platform to sell books.

City Limits Publishing is here to improve literacy, publish quality written content, educate potential authors, and help others.
