We are a feminist press committed to publishing socially engaged literature with an emphasis on the voices of people of color, people with disabilities, and other historically silenced and culturally marginalized voices.

We're interested in submissions from authors who have a distinctive voice and write books that explore the lives and concerns of those who identify as women and/or people of color.

Compelling narratives that transcend the status quo to introduce new perspectives are our preference.

While we seek prose, our poetic sensibilities love rich, vivid writing that is mindful of the music/rhythm of language.

We explore the pulse and voice of the Heartland through the use of the literary arts. How can we best live in Midwest. From fiction and fact, to journalism to poetry.

We recognize we are one of very few presses with a focus on the Midwest. We prefer authors that are patient and have realistic expectations. Publishing now requires authors to be more involved in publicity than ever before. You must be comfortable with promotions.
