Editorial Focus

Wet Cement Press is a small press based in Berkeley, California, with editors in Reno, Nevada, and Asheville, North Carolina. The press typically publishes three to five books a year with a focus on poetry, innovative memoir and creative non-fiction, experimental fiction, and hybrid work combining image and text. Wet Cement Press was started by a group of writers who once lived and worked together in San Francisco. Aesthetic tastes run toward the lyrical and spontaneous, the raw and unsmooth.

Tips From the Editor

 We are looking for work that is subtle, conscious, and aware. Lyricism, far-flung locations, daring, desperation, and experimentation are all of interest.
