Editorial Focus

Forest Avenue Press publishes literary fiction on a joyride and the occasional memoir. They especially love working with BIPOC, queer, neurodivergent, and disabled authors. 

Tips From the Editor

We love manuscripts that inspire delight and wonder, so we’re not the best place for angry stories or deeply sad ones. We are primarily a fiction press and only look at memoirs on an occasional by-request basis.
