Update 5/2: We have just 7 days left in the campaign. We updated our stretch goals and hope you'll help us get where we need to go. 

Update 4/29: Two days ago, we hit our funding goals! Stretch goals added below! Let's get to $10,000. We'll be able to double author advances when we hit $6500, and we'll be able to publish an additional book in 2016 (on top of what we have planned) at $7500. There are TEN DAYS left. Let's do this.

The Project 

Justin Daugherty launched Jellyfish Highway Press in 2014. Matthew Fogarty joined Jellyfish Highway to help make JHP the coolest press around in 2015.

Jellyfish Highway will publish work that stands outside the traditional and expected. Jellyfish Highway is publishing at least 7 books (announced so far) in our first year that call up from the deep, books that sting and stay in the blood. Jellyfish Highway is a source for innovative, vibrant works of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. 

Where JHP is Headed

As we publish our 3rd, 4th, and 5th books, and as attention for the press grows and spreads, we want to be able to increase production values and marketing campaigns for our authors. 

What is the plan, specifically? Well, to start, this campaign will help us to fund the Second Year Catalog of books, following the novella, How We Endure, by Jarod Roselló and the debut story collection by Dana Diehl. We have some exciting things planned. There are stretch goals planned as well. The more we raise, the closer we will be toward expanding in reach of these goals: 

  • We want to establish book prizes for women, queer writers, and writers of color with larger advances and marketing campaigns
  • The establishment of a graphic novel wing
  • The establishment of an "urban writers residency" in Atlanta

First and foremost, we hope you'll help us be able to enhance marketing and promotional outreach going forward as well as a substantial catalog for year two (at least 5 books, including our first novel(s)). We will continue to seek out diverse voices and will promote our books widely and with great enthusiasm regardless of the campaign, but these funds will allow us to widen and deepen our efforts.

Check out the wonderful rewards we're offering: from author book bundles, to book + art packages, to dining experiences, to editorial sessions. Please consider donating to help make Jellyfish Highway Press one of the most innovative, exciting presses around.

The Books

In our first year, will publish 5 full-length titles: Ashley Farmer's The Farmacist; Your Sick by Elizabeth J. Colen, Carol Guess, & Kelly Magee; Daughters of Monsters by Melissa Goodrich; How We Endure by Jarod Roselló; and [title forthcoming], a story collection by Dana Diehl. We will also be publishing 2 chapbooks: Emily O'Neill's You Can't Pick Your Genre and another chapbook to be announced shortly. 

 The Farmacist—Ashley Farmer

Step inside Ashley Farmer's America: a dizzying digital-agrarian-fever-dream fueled by virtual farmers plowing fallow fields for fake coins into the afterglow of evening, where Jesus Christ returns as a fallen satellite and the ghost of Ted Kennedy gets drunk on the lawn. In this wildly unconventional fictional universe, Farmer situates us at the intersections of work and play, the real and the imagined, the rural and the urban. THE FARMACIST is a hilariously heartbreaking romp through the cybernetic fields and streams and over to the imitation inns and taverns and on into your own neighborhood where the empire ends at the end of your street.

 Your Sick—Elizabeth J. Colen, Carol Guess, & Kelly Magee

Fever dreams turn kids into parrots, lungs sprout seeds, and a lover’s infection infuses into her name. In this collaborative collection, real contagions transform into magical kinds of sickness, from airborne amnesia to genetic tornados to plague-stricken mail. These magical stories offer no cures for the human condition, but they will infect you with dreams of a different kind of life.

 Daughters of Monsters—Melissa Goodrich

Melissa Goodrich's debut short story collection, Daughters of Monsters, is a raw and magical book of spells, an honest yet harrowing look at the wonder and threat of the world. In these 17 short stories, a toxic cloud sweeps west to east across the country, devouring all in its path. Past versions of a man show up at the birthday party he's thrown himself. A lonely trucker delivers two-headed angels as part of a money-making scheme. And, in the title story, a daughter of monsters awaits her coming-of-age. The characters in this collection tempt disintegration as they attempt to become their fuller selves, staring hard into the treacherous fog in their ways.

You Can't Pick Your Genre—Emily O'Neill

The poems in Emily O'Neill's You Can't Pick Your Genre endure. They riot. These poems are shining echoes from the Scream film series, but they are also warnings, testimonials, declarations. Emily O'Neill tells us, "Watch how practiced / you are, letting him practice desire on your disinterest." O'Neill re-renders the split-open bodies of women in horror films as testimonials of survival. Each poem is a reclamation, a rebirth, pulling the audience through the horror of how it feels to be acted upon as an object at a story's center. Each howling voice tells the reader, I am still here and I can never be killed.

Each $2,000 benchmark will allow us to print additional titles in 2016.

Each title will be sold in paperback and ebook formats. 

What will we publish? Beautiful, bioluminscent books. 

Why Us? 

You want something new and exciting. You've been waiting. You didn't know you wanted postindustrial bioluminescence until you found us, and now it's real and you want it so very badly. 

The pedigree here is strong. If you haven't, visit Sundog Lit (founded and edited by Justin L. Daugherty). Check out Cartridge Lit (co-edited by Justin Daugherty & Joel Hans). Matt Fogarty edited for Yemassee. We will publish memorable, lasting works. Check out all that we've brought before if you need convincing. We are ready to bring you beauty and fire. 

We are dedicated to showcasing diverse voices and publishing more books by women, people of color, and queer writers. 

We are artists and want to help bring beautiful art into the world. We aren't here for fame or glory or money. We believe so much in literature and the writers we're publishing and will publish. We are passionate about making and creating. 

Expenses

Why are we asking for your help? Here's where all of your money will go:

  • the establishment of book prizes for a woman, a writer of color, and a queer/trans writer (we want to be able to offer a reward that far outweighs our standard advance in addition to royalties on books) 
  • increased publication of chapbooks 
  • publicizing and marketing, including getting these deserving titles into bookstores and sellers around the country
  • the establishment of a graphic novel wing of the press 
  • publication of a larger catalog of postindustrial, bioluminescent books in 2016 and 2017 (as mentioned above, each $2000 benchmark will allow us to publish more in 2016)
  • the establishment of an urban writers residency in Atlanta
  • larger advances than we currently offer (which we feel are currently competitive, but would like to offer our writers more) 
  • Travel/tour funds to help send our writers on promotional tours for their books 
  • offsetting production, website hosting and maintenance, art/design, and other costs
  • Printing
  • Layout
  • Design
  • Art 
  • ISBNs 
  • High-quality products with beautiful design
  • Shipping
  • Jellyfish Highway site maintenance
  • Government registration fees 
  • Increasing the advances we are able to give our authors

Stretch Goals

Here's where we are headed as we raise money for the press:

$5,000 goal—Initial Goal: we're committed to book prizes, establishing a writers' residency in Atlanta, and starting a graphic novel wing.

$6,500 goal—Higher Advances: we will raise the advances we pay our authors. Once we hit this benchmark, the first book in our Morrow imprint (speculative fiction and poetry) will be covered.

$7,500 goal—Additional Title: we will publish one more title in our 1st year than originally planned. 

$10,000 goal—Book Tour War Chest: we will stow away a substantial portion of the funds to enhance our books and promote our authors through book tours and readings.

$15,000 goal—MUSE: We will launch a funding initiative—through an application process—to provide one underrepresented writer/artist financial support for their literary project.

$20,000 goal—MUSE x 2: We will grant two underrepresented writers/artists funding for their projects. We will also sharply increase efforts to get our books into independent bookstores around the country. 

$30,000 goal—MUSE fund: we will increase the amounts granted to writers in the MUSE initiative

Spread the Word

We need you. To help sound the call far and wide. Please, go to Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, the corners of the streets you live on and beyond, and tell folks about how much you love literature and how you want us to bring beautiful things into the world. Follow Jellyfish Highway on Twitter and Facebook. Tell your friends. We are here. We are hungry. 

We thank you in advance for all of your support! We love you. Now, let's make some bioluminescent books. 

Risks and challenges

There are often unexpected delays in design and publication, and while we have a planned timetable for release of upcoming books, that all depends on things coming together as planned. We will stick as close to production schedules as planned.

The challenge here is to be able to increase visibility for our authors and for the press—that includes publicity and promotion. The more we raise, the more we can expand and raise awareness.

    FREQUENT TWO DOLLAR RADIO FLYER CLUB: You will receive FOUR of the JHP titles of your choice PLUS EACH volume of Frequencies from Two Dollar Radio. That's EIGHT books for a very low price! Here's how TWD describes these essay collections:

    "Frequencies is Two Dollar Radio's journal of artful essays. We lovingly described it as 'a grungier, less self-righteous Harper's.'

    The essays featured are penned by contemporary luminaries such as Roxane Gay, Kate Zambreno, Blake Butler, and Joshua Cohen, as well as sharp new voices like Sara Finnerty, Tracy Rose Keaton, and Colin Asher.

    The pieces themselves are thought-provoking and wide-ranging, covering Guatemalan frontier towns, the effects of the gay sex trade on the Thai economy, issues of belonging in middle class black America, to the life and filmography of writer/director Barbara Loden.

    There are also fun interviews with authors like Mark Z. Danielewski and Grace Krilanovich discussing ghosts, T.S. Eliot interviewing T.S. Eliot, to a satirical (satirical=not real=fictional=satirical!) interview with rapscallion Shia LaBeouf that he didn't like very much."

    PUBLISHING TALK: JHP Co-Publishers Justin Daugherty and Matt Fogarty will spend an hour on the phone (or on Skype) with you to talk about publishing. In addition to running JHP, these guys have edited fancy university-sponsored literary magazines, started indie literary magazines, and submitted to (and been rejected from!) literary magazines. Matt also has a book coming out from a reputable press. We'll talk about anything you want. Send us a story beforehand and we'll brainstorm places for your work.
