Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Et Alia is a small press for big voices publishing award-winning books of national interest with strong ties to Arkansas. Et Alia has three areas of focus: > Local Histories: preserves and expands cultural memory in its diversity, especially valuing neglected and alternative histories. > Health and Wellness: places special emphasis on physical, emotional, financial, spiritual, and environmental well-being; the series also gives voice to practitioners of holistic and alternative medicine. > Emerging Artists: gives voice to talented first-book authors. We proudly share that most of the books we've published by Arkansas authors have been or will be included in the Six Bridges Book Festival (formerly Arkansas Literary Festival). Et Alia books have also been featured in the Examined Life Conference, the Louisiana Book Festival, and Columbia University's Seminar in Narrative, Health, and Social Justice, among other festivals and events. All of our books are printed in the US. We are thankful for every purchase, but encourage support of small, local businesses through direct purchases via our website and through local retailers. These purchases provide greater financial sustainability so that we can continue publishing great projects and supporting our growing family of authors. Et Alia books may be ordered through our website book store with free shipping and local delivery, purchased in the dozens of retail stores listed on our site, and purchased through national booksellers. Booksellers can also order our titles through Ingram.

Submissions statement on website: PLEASE NOTE: We only consider manuscripts with strong ties to Arkansas. We are primarily interested in nonfiction and children’s picture book titles, and it is unlikely that we will publish a poetry collection, novel, middle grade/young adult title, or short story collection at this time. Inquiries are welcome. Please do not send complete manuscripts unless requested to do so. If you've only written half your book, please wait to reach out to us until it is complete. Think we might be interested in your completed work and ready to submit? Order one of your potential future pressmate's books through our website. We are a small and supportive community, and we'd appreciate this signal that you're invested in the work of other writers in our circle as well as your own. Follow us on social media. (See above.) Reach out to us through the form below. We are indeed a "small press," (read one-woman-show) which means that it may take us some time to get to your inquiry. Please be patient, but if you haven't heard from us within a couple of months, feel free to reach out again. Et Alia publications may be ordered through our website book store with complimentary local delivery and free shipping, through Ingram or Amazon.com, or purchased in local stores. When you support small businesses, creatives and entrepreneurs thrive. Thank you for considering making purchases directly through Et Alia or small/family-owned businesses!
