We publish well written, serious books that have limited commercial appeal. They aim at what John Milton called, a "fit audience, though few."
Our books are memoirs, novels, short story collections, creative non-fiction, and excursions into art and ideas. Some of our books constitute a witness to history.
We are an artists' cooperative press. We are also published in traditional format or in film and online. Some of our authors are former or current magazine editors. One author has been the founder and editor of a major scholarly journal in literature. We are members of the Writers Guild, the Directors Guild, the Dramatists Guild, and the Authors Guild. One author is a member of the Association Internationale des Critiques d’Art, another appeared regularly on WNPR talking about books.
