Editorial Focus

Wolfson Press publishes books in the arts and humanities, including literary titles (poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction). The press has a special interest in the region called Michiana, those counties of north-central Indiana and southwestern Michigan that are served by Indiana University South Bend. Regionally, the press has focused on the history of race relations and civil rights. More generally, it publishes histories, biographies, and anthologies that illuminate the cultural life of the region.

Tips From the Editor

Although we don’t normally accept unsolicited manuscripts (except through our poetry and prose contests), writers may query us, especially if the manuscript has a connection to Northern Indiana or Southern Michigan. We publish civil rights history of the Michiana region, and we would consider other kinds of titles of local or regional interest.

In poetry and fiction, we’re looking for freshness of expression and perspective.
