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, Dessa, Ed Bok Lee, Joanna Rawson, Jim Northrup, Steph Burt, Alison McGhee, Hadara Bar-Nadav, Kirsten Dierking, the WorkHaus Collective, and many others.

Our newest series, Out-of-Pocket, includes books by Juliet Patterson, Rachel Jendrzejewski, J. Otis Powell!?, Brianna Johnson, and Carolyn Holbrook. Our focus in this series is on expanding and facilitating the local literary conversation in regard to experimentation, current issues, and new voices. We have several new projects underway for Out of Pocket and will be publishing more dynamic additions to the series soon!

At the present time, we are not accepting unsolicited manuscripts. Please check the Call for Submissions for new publishing opportunities.
