C&R Press began in 2006 as a literary press committed to publishing books from new and emerging poets whose work might otherwise be ignored by commercial publishers. We were interested in supporting authors whose thoughtful and imaginative contribution to contemporary literature deserved recognition and support. We've since expanded our catalog to include exciting new fiction and creative nonfiction and reportage/journalism, too.
Do understand that we get more submissions per month than we could ever publish in a lifetime. Please don't take rejections personally. We frequently reject books that are picked up at other presses!
