About

It has-for as long as I can remember-been a goal of mine to have a book published. To this day, you will find scattered through my apartment, manuscript after manuscript, notebook upon notebook filled with short stories, poems, and even a novella.

Accompanying that dream however is the dread of not finding a publisher who would carry my left-field writing style or themes. Multiple prospects arose, including one promising publisher based in Toronto, Canada who in the end was unable to publish my book because of funding issues. I refused to settle for 'self-publishing' options like Lulu.com, fearing my work would be absorbed into the masses of books cobbled together by people with the patience to sit at a word processor; I refused to be doomed to obscurity by mass association. The idea to self publish, from that moment was born.

Motivated by a desire to see more of my generation publish their work and feel validated for the emotions compelling them to create, I decided I would start a publishing house. My goal is to exhibit the finest young literature my town has to offer; give these writers a chance, and set gold standard of composition among my generation. Please help me see this to reality, it is not a goal that's going to happen at the stroke of a pen.

Funding for this project will go towards acquiring our printing sources, website, a modest office space, and plenty of coffee to keep me on track.
