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!

Representative Authors: 

Kristina Marie Darling, Xu Xi, John Reed, Sybil Baker, Martin Ott, Annie Christain, An Tran, Earl Braggs, Meredith Nnoka, Chris Campanioni, Michelle Bitting, Stacey Lynn Brown, David Slavit, Jason Koo

SUBMISSIONS ARE OPEN TO ALL, although I prefer writing that is either written by composition teachers and writing students OR about teaching and learning. I believe that writing students (virtually everyone has been a writing student) need to have a voice in Teach. Write. However, I do request that in your required third-person bio you include your composition teacher experience, if you have any, or explain the impact writing instruction has had on you.

Do not feel that the subject of your piece needs to be about teaching, although I am not opposed to teaching as a theme. I am open to any quality, polished writing. No gratuitous sex, violence or profanity, please.

Founded in 2011, Homebound Publications is one of the premier independent publishers in the country. It is our intention to preserve contemplative storytelling. We publish introspective works of creative non–fiction, fiction & poetry.

We are a small press with big ideas set on publishing substance over flash. We routinely work with authors who don’t fit neatly into the corporate publishing model, giving a voice to the countless independent thinkers currently neglected by the mainstream media.

A Letter from the Founder, L.M. Browning

I founded Homebound Publications to bring together a community of like-minded thinkers and see what the dialogue yielded. I didn’t have any sense of how big the press would grow or how widely our titles would be shared, I simply carved out a space in which others could speak and share those deep thoughts they’d pondered. I have always been an ardent believer in creative minds requiring a circle of fellows to push them. The discussion, the inspiration, the contemplation, and the community encourages the kind of boundary-pushing, ego destruction, and refinement of beliefs that bring about movements of change in the larger world. 

Representative Authors: 

We are seeking titles with special focus on spirituality, education, regional interest, history, personal growth, self-help, and ecological. (We have a soft spot for books about our native region of New England.) Authors representative of the work we seek would be: Barry Lopez, Joanna Macy, Gary Snyder, David Abram, Mary Oliver, Rainer Maria Rilke, Annie Dillard, David Whyte, Cheryl Strayed, Jack Kerouac, Walt Whitman, and Henry David Thoreau.

Call + Response is a literary and arts journal providing a creative hub for new and emerging artists of color. We aim to introduce fresh and creative voices to the world through diverse and original art, poetry, fiction, essays, and reviews.

This journal is a celebration and an exploration made by POC, for POC.

This is a safe place for creatives to be, well, creative. But this is also a hate-free zone. Although we will accept political and mature work with topics like sexuality, gender identity, racism, colorism, sexism, reproductive rights, etc. We will not accept work that explicitly details rape, murder and/or bodily or self-harm.

Since 2012, The Wayfarer has been offering literature, interviews, and art with the intention to inspires our readers, enrich their lives, and highlight the power for agency and change-making that each individual holds.

By our definition, a wayfarer is one whose inner compass is ever-oriented to truth, wisdom, healing, and beauty in their own wandering. The Wayfarer’s mission as a publication is to foster a community of contemplative voices and provide readers with resources and perspectives that support them in their own journey.

As we move into our 7th year, in the face of these frightening times we must endure, we renew our commitment to our readers to be a space of solace and our pledge to advocate for marginalized communities, the arts, and environmental conservation.
