SFK Press is an independent publisher based in Metro Atlanta. The path for an artist to reach a wider audience is no longer exclusively controlled by corporate gatekeepers measuring each choice purely by its economic return. This is the founding premise of SFK Press, to cultivate the artistic voices of the new millennium with a Southern accent.

ILOANBooks is a publishing collective specializing in low circulation prose poetry, often with illustrations or photography. We take pride in publishing brilliant, and perhaps unmarketable, literature. We also publish electronically, posting poetry and stories that we are not prepared to print.

We are more likely to publish short stories and poems than novels. Also, feel free to submit individual pieces as we update the web journal on a regular basis and always appreciate contributions.

Founded in 2011, Homebound Publications is one of the premier independent publishers in the country. It is our intention to preserve contemplative storytelling. We publish introspective works of creative non–fiction, fiction & poetry.

We are a small press with big ideas set on publishing substance over flash. We routinely work with authors who don’t fit neatly into the corporate publishing model, giving a voice to the countless independent thinkers currently neglected by the mainstream media.

A Letter from the Founder, L.M. Browning

I founded Homebound Publications to bring together a community of like-minded thinkers and see what the dialogue yielded. I didn’t have any sense of how big the press would grow or how widely our titles would be shared, I simply carved out a space in which others could speak and share those deep thoughts they’d pondered. I have always been an ardent believer in creative minds requiring a circle of fellows to push them. The discussion, the inspiration, the contemplation, and the community encourages the kind of boundary-pushing, ego destruction, and refinement of beliefs that bring about movements of change in the larger world. 

Representative Authors: 

We are seeking titles with special focus on spirituality, education, regional interest, history, personal growth, self-help, and ecological. (We have a soft spot for books about our native region of New England.) Authors representative of the work we seek would be: Barry Lopez, Joanna Macy, Gary Snyder, David Abram, Mary Oliver, Rainer Maria Rilke, Annie Dillard, David Whyte, Cheryl Strayed, Jack Kerouac, Walt Whitman, and Henry David Thoreau.

Holland Park Press, founded in 2009, is a privately-owned independent company publishing literary fiction: novels, novellas, short stories; and poetry. The company is run by brother and sister team Arnold and Bernadette Jansen op de Haar. Holland Park Press specialises in finding new literary talent by accepting unsolicited manuscripts from authors all year round and by running competitions. It has been successful in giving older authors a chance to make their debut and in raising the profile of Dutch authors in translation.
