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.

Hiraeth Press is an imprint of Homebound Publications that has been publishing since 2006 with a focus on environmental literature.We primarily publish nonfiction books exploring themes of conservation, rewilding, place-based narratives, natural history, and contemplative ecology. We accept submissions that range from meditations on nature to well-researched yet accessible nonfiction titles. Broadly, we are interested in books that bring together science and poetry, bridging the gap between knowing the earth and knowing the self.

Poetry is the language of the earth. This includes not only poems but the slow flap of a heron’s wings across the sky, the lightning of its beak hunting in the shallow water; autumn leaves and the smooth course of water over stones and gravel. These, as much as poems, communicate the being and meaning of things. We strive to produce works of poetry, whether they are actual poems or nonfiction. We are passionate about poetry as a means of returning the human voice to the chorus of the wild.

We are looking for voices which carry a message of change, of love and liberation from marginalized places, unexplored spaces. We love art, photography included with narratives and are inclined to publish writing which pushes the borderlands between one genre and another, disappearing divisions between us. All together. We offer a nEw collection of author services to bridge the digital divides!

Please send your BEST samples, not an entire wo/manuscript. Please write a cover letter that tells us: why you wrote the work, how it could "change the world" where you see it selling, how open you are to marketting your own work (a must) and your favorite writers/artists!

Include a bio of published work, studies and any activist causes/groups which have inspired your writing.

Representative Authors: 

Amalio Madueno, Taos Poetry Circus co-founder/feature poet, Taos, N.M. Ed Little Crow, Lakota former member of the American Indian Movement. Judy Hogan, North Carolina feminist poet.
