Black Radish Books is going to New Orleans for the NOLA Poetry Festival. Poets Carmen Gimenez Smith, Anastacia Renée, Jean Vengua, Dana Teen Lomax, and mónica teresa ortiz will be participating in a panel reading, our managing editor and co-publisher Marthe Reed will be featured at the noon reading on Sunday, and the press will have a table at the book fair with discounted prices! Don’t miss out!
Our collective editorial focus is to publish and promote innovative books of poetry, prose, cross-genre and other hybrid writing. We strive to operate with a collective impetus, and all board members are encouraged to contribute various talents other than the literary to the publishing of the press. Our goal is to allow members, not the artistic conscience of a press, to dictate the aesthetic. As such, our bent is best described as eclectic with focus on the difficult and the surprising.
We strongly support literary community collaboration and exchange, and we look for this spirit in our published and potential authors as well. All Black Radish Books authors are well-established creators of innovative writing and have been carefully selected based on quality, publication history, promotional/marketing ability (as established micro-presses, or as regular promoters of), and demonstrated commitment to actively supporting diverse aesthetics.
While we are presently unable to look at unsolicited submissions, please keep your eyes and ears peeled on our events page for future book calls, releases, recordings and reading events!
