akinoga press is a Baltimore-based micro-press that specialzes in hand-bound chapbooks of a spacious/minimalist/austere flavor, though we're on the lookout for anything small, quiet, odd, and easily-missed.

We're also dedicated to creating a space for voices that need to be heard and works that 100% need to be read.

AKINOGA PRESS IS NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS/PROJECTS FOR CONSIDERATION

The next open consideration period will likely be some time in fall of 2021, but check back here (or akinogapress.com/submissions) for more details as things solidify.
