Editorial Focus

Actual Left was established to make up for what the editors saw as a severe gap in the literary publishing industry: the lack of presses formed to address social justice issues. The editors hope to publish books dedicated to advancing social justice causes for as long as such causes need to be championed.

Tips From the Editor

Please be very direct in your query about how your submission deals with social justice. Does your submission explore misogyny, racism, wage slavery, or climate change? Say that in the query.
