Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Frayed Edge Press is a small independent publishing house based in Philadelphia. We publish literary fiction and poetry, as well as non-fiction titles in history, political science, and other social sciences/humanities. We also publish the Street Smart Series of Short Fiction for People on the Go, poetry chapbooks, and themed poetry anthologies. We especially welcome marginalized voices, both historical and contemporary, including women, people of color, ethnic and religious minorities, the LGBTQ+ community, and progressive political viewpoints. We particularly seek to publish works that wrestle with important questions challenging contemporary society, including political and environmental concerns, civil rights, women's rights, and sustainability.

We are currently accepting book proposals in the categories of fiction, poetry, and non-fiction (primarily history and politics). We also publish a short fiction series and a poetry chapbook series. We are seeking interesting, well-written works that are a bit "on the edge." We support diverse books and are particularly interested in, but not limited to, works expressing the viewpoints of women, people of color, ethnic and religious minorities, and the LGBTQ+ community. Online query forms are available on our website.
