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.

Golden Antelope Press is a small press operated in conjunction with, or spun off from, its sister presses, the more scholarly Blazing Sapphire and Naciketas Presses. The focus of this press is creative works of fiction and poetry. So far we have published twenty-nine books; two more are essentially done, with another two in the pipeline. We try to do about six books per year, and have had to turn down many worthwhile projects.

We seek to publish—in paper and ink—the best writing. We take our ethic and aesthetic from the Canon Law of the Roman Catholic Church. Not all of it; just Canon 1115, which closes with the provoking observation that "Foundlings are presumed to be legitimate until the contrary is proved." 

We also take direction from Coco Chanel, who observed that “style is all that endures.”

Foundlings Press is a highly selective publisher of full-length works of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and certain other uncategorizable material. Under our imprint The Public Books we publish full-length nonfiction works of historical, political, cultural, economic, and often local interest. The Press also produces a biannual print poetry magazine. We will accept unsolicited submissions during two four-week periods each year. Foundlings hosts an annual artist residency and poetry chapbook publication contest, which pairs a winning poet with a pre-selected guest book artist.

Fat Dog Books is an independent online publisher founded on the premise that if our experience with reading a manuscript is satisfying and engages our intellect and imagination, then it might just do the same for other readers. We grew from a long partnership with another reputable, online publisher, Martin Sisters Publishing, and found the experience of working with authors so enjoyable that we established our own publishing company. Combined, the staff at Fat Dog Books has over 40 years of experience in publishing, editing, writing, and design.

Please visit our website at fatdogbooks.com. Review "Working with Authors" and the submission guidelines. All submissions are through the website forms. All submissions should target an audience 13 or older.

Civil Coping Mechanisms (CCM) is a DIY kind of press. We take the same level of angst as our brethren in shunning those that would be in the immediate position of neglecting our efforts as artisans. Why not do it our way? We want literary objects infused with otherness: So new, so different, that they renovate our notion of what literature can be.

We are always looking for innovative fiction. We prefer to see completed work so no excerpts or proposals. Short story collections rank fairly low on our list of demands. We would prefer to see something whole rather than in bits and pieces.
