Spout Press: Serving Weird Writers Since 1989. Help us continue to create outlandish literary culture.
Spout Press is committed to publishing and promoting contemporary experimental writing, as well as to mentoring young writers and bringing new and/or under appreciated voices to the attention of a larger audience.
Spout features local and regional writers, and has published the work of Howard Zinn, Hoa Nguyen, Joanna Furhman, Dessa, Ed Bok Lee, Joanna Rawson, Jim Northrup, Steph Burt, Alison McGhee, Hardara Bar-Nadav, Kirsten Dierking, and many others.
Our newest series, Out Of Pocket, includes books by Juliet Patterson (Epilogue, 2016), Rachel Jendrzejewski (Encyclopedia, 2016), J. Otis Powell!? (waiting for a spaceship, 2017) and Brianna Johnson (The Axe Lectures, 2017) with upcoming titles by Carolyn Lee Holbrook and Maureen Aitken currently in production. Our focus in this series is on expanding and facilitating local literary conversation in regard to experimentation, current issues, and new voices.
Spout Press is a volunteer collective — no one who works for Spout gets paid; your full donation goes toward production costs and to authors. We are committed to creating community through the arts, and to the vision of independent publishing. With your support, we can continue to publish work that is fresh and compelling (and weird) well into the future. Please help us complete our current projects, and thank you!
