Carolina Wren Press

Carolina Wren Press is a very small, independent publisher with an interest in voices from beyond the mainstream. We publish prose and poetry by underrepresented writers such as women, people of color, authors with disabilities, LGBT authors, and experimental writers at the rate of 2-3 books per year. Very occasionally (e.g., once every few years), we publish a children’s book that we feel can improve children’s lives by helping them deal with disease, difference, gender issues, bullying, etc.
