Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
WTAW Press is an independent, 501(c)(3) nonprofit publisher devoted to discovering and publishing enduring literary works. We publish a carefully curated list of titles across a range of genres (literary fiction, narrative nonfiction, essay, and prose that falls somewhere in between), subject matter, and perspectives. In addition to full-length books, WTAW Alcove Chapbooks launches in the fall of 2022. We welcome submissions from writers of all backgrounds and especially encourage submissions by women, BIPOC, LGBTQ+ or nonbinary gender people, persons with disabilities, and other traditionally underrepresented groups. We aim to support authors throughout their careers. Learn more about our publishing program at our website.
