Two Lines Press gives American readers the opportunity to read some of the great work from outside our borders that they would not otherwise get to see. As the barriers between cultures continue to come down and more authors find inspiration in foreign lands, there’s all the more reason for us all to read the world. 

Two Lines Press is ONLY a translation publisher, we do not publish works originally written in English, and we do not publish works where the author is also the translator. We are interested in literary fiction—books that are driven by voice or style over plot or content. We currently do not publish collections of poetry, but hope to change that someday. Check the website occasionally for updates. The best way to get a sense of what we're interested in is to check out our books, our journal Two Lines, or representative work on our website.

Representative Authors: 

Santiago Roncagliolo (translated by Edith Grossman) Marie NDiaye (translated by Jordan Stump) Jonathan Littell (translated by Charlotte Mandell) Xu Zechen (translated by Eric Abrahamsen) Naja Marie Aidt (translated by Denise Newman)

Tupelo Press, which released its first five books in fall 2001, is an independent, literary press devoted to discovering and publishing works of poetry, literary fiction and nonfiction by emerging and established writers. Tupelo Press is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit company.

What we look for is a blend of urgency of language, imagination, distinctiveness, and craft. What we produce and how we produce it — from design to printing to paper quality — honors the writing in books which boast the uniquely sensual look and feel of a Tupelo Press book.

Embodying the obsolete word it was named after, Apricity aims to manifest the feeling of the warmth of the sun in the winter in all that it publishes. Established in 2015, Apricity Press was created to fill an immense void in the publishing world. While there are a myriad of presses, literary journals and magazines, many lack the ability to publish multi-genre works, especially dance works. Because of this, Apricity constructed a space where incredible literary, art and dance works could be published side by side, showcasing the tremendous connections between the forms. 

When submitting to Apricity, please follow our submission guidelines carefully!

We are a small, independent, not-for-profit press dedicated to publishing sublime art & literature, i.e., eccentric art & obscure texts, absurdist fiction, experimental visions, and works in translation. Our innovative Absurdist Texts & Documents series features works designed to disrupt, disorient, and smash boundaries—academic, cultural, literary, and philosophical.

Most of the queries we receive come from people who have clearly not read our books. Do not send a query without being familiar with the authors and artists we publish, i.e., read our books.

Representative Authors: 

Alphonse Allais; Tom Whalen; Opal Louis Nations; Alain Arias-Misson; Balzac; Richard Kostelanetz; Terry Southern; Samantha Memi; Suzanne Burns; Yuriy Tarnawsky.

IthacaLit's annual Difficult Fruit Poetry Prize awards the winning poet $1,000.00. We publish & promote the best writing we find, chosen from among the many submissions sent our way, by emerging & established writers. We seek to bridge differences by publishing poets whose voices represent the myriad experiences we encounter in this life. 

We greatly appreciate poetry that connects with the human condition in all its adversity & diversity. Non-fiction grounded in the larger concept of process in poetry, visual art, or music, or innovative theses about writing and education in lit & art, are the essays we value. We are keen on author & artist interviews. Drop us a line, if you have questions.
