Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Located in downtown Spokane, Washington, we are dedicated to the publication of meaningful, well-crafted books and to helping fill the interstitial spaces in our literary community. We are likeliest to accept books with driving narrative force: literary, upmarket, and young adult novels, as well as memoirs, travelogues, and other narrative nonfiction works in the realms of history, science, conservation, social justice, journalism and outdoor adventure. ​In short, we're seeking compelling books which elevate people's understanding of the world through the awesome and immortal power of story. We are particularly interested in books concerning the American West, especially the Intermountain West. We are proud to collaborate with numerous award-winning and bestselling authors, and we especially enjoy supporting the careers of writers typically underrepresented and overlooked in today’s literary ecosystem: authors from rural and small-town America, authors from working-class and blue collar backgrounds, incarcerated authors, and authors of color.
