  • Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
    Acre Books, the book-publishing offshoot of The Cincinnati Review, aims to build on the excellence that its parent publication has become known for. Like CR, our small press will focus on surprising, imaginative, and absorbing works---of poetry, fiction, literary nonfiction, and hybrid forms---that are expertly crafted and beautifully polished, and that engage readers aesthetically as well as emotionally. We are devoted in particular to finding, and bringing to a broad readership, remarkably talented newcomers. Initially we will bring out 4 to 5 titles annually, but we intend in the coming years to expand our lists and our staff. Visit acre-books.com to subscribe to our mailing list.
