Type Of Organization
Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Wolfson Press publishes a wide range of books in the arts and humanities, including literary titles. We have a special interest in books about the region called Michiana, those counties of north-central Indiana and southern Michigan that are served by Indiana University South Bend. Regionally, the press has focused on the history of race relations and civil rights, through the book series On Their Shoulders, edited by Emeritus Professor of History Les Lamon. More generally, we seek to publish histories, biographies, and anthologies that illuminate the cultural life of our region. We publish literary titles with a national scope, including collections of short fiction, memoirs, essays, and novellas through the American Storytellers series; individual volumes of poetry by new and established poets; and volumes of “collected poems” by late-career established poets.

Likewise ineligible are former or current Indiana University students and employees, friends and family of the director of the press, and friends and students of the contest judges." Wolfson Press abides by the Community of Literary Magazines and Presses (CLMP) Contest Code of Ethics.
