Ananke Press is a small, independent press in New York City with the focus on smart speculative fiction. We welcome odd and unexpected stories, masterfully crafted with the love of language in mind. Ananke Press is a member of IBPA; we offer a traditional contract.

Ananke Press is a selective press. Number of previous publications is unimportant; what matters is the quality of the work. We like intelligent and unconventional projects. If you are finding it difficult to fit your novel on a prescribed shelf, it might find a home with us.

Hello ---

I love to read obscure literary fiction and quirky contemporary fiction. I have 2 novels on Amazon, and a 3rd one on the way. They are, ok, hopefully, humorous - with dark underlying themes. I am currently using Amazon Advertising to sell them.

I am looking for a writers' group that is into all the aspects of sales. Agents, Amazon Ads, blurbs, landing pages, data research.

Thanks for this opportunity to hook up with fabulous people.

Nina Rota

I have a work in progress of eight linked essays that use memoir to discuss more universal issues such as LSD, war, Greek myths, desire, and a few theories about our material reality. I've been using writing dates throughout my writing career and I adore them and the writers I meet with. I meet writers doing fiction, experimental theater, cultural studies, nonfiction, poetry and so on. I prefer writing dates where there is periodic critique but most of the time is spent writing.

Sheryl Loeffler

Here's what I've submitted to prospective publishers:

Sheryl Loeffler is a Canadian writer and musician. Her poetry, prose poetry, and creative nonfiction (more than 50 titles) have been published in literary magazines and anthologies in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Austria, and Japan. In April 2005, she moved to Malta, at the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, returning to Canada in May 2006In May 2014, A Land in the Storytelling Sea, her book of poems, prose poems, and photographs born in and about Malta, was published by FARAXA Publishing, Rabat, Malta. In 2015, she was elected to membership in the League of Canadian Poets. For two months in 2017, she was resident at The Writers’ Colony at Dairy Hollow, Eureka Springs, Arkansas, USA. In 2019, she was nominated for a Pushcart Prize.

I'm a solitary writer. I'd very much like community (even remote community) for friendship (even remote friendship), support, and constructive criticism. A community of poets would be ideal.

Bill Waters

Hi! My name is Bill Waters, and I love to write! Over the years, I've carved out a small but vibrant space for myself mainly in the areas of Japanese-style micropoetry, photo and video poetry, ekphrastic poetry, found verse, and compressed prose. My work has appeared in print and online in numerous established, up-and-coming, and aspiring niche publications, as well as on signs as part of public poetry installations.

Are there any writers out there who like to write collaboratively? It's fun! There are two-person and three-person rengay (Japanese-style micropoetry that employs alternating stanzas); multiperson "exquisite corpse" poems, where writers are given only the last word of the preceding stanza as a prompt; two-person tapestry poems, in which two poems -- one written by each participant -- are shuffled together into one poem, and other possibilities. 

Why write collaboratively? It's interactive; it's friendly; it stirs up the creative juices; and it can lead to some remarkably good (and publishable!) results. I'm game... Are you?  :- )
