INTRODUCING: WE ARE NOT SHADOWS ANTHOLOGY

The first anthology from Folkways Press is finally here:

Despite living in a time when more women are speaking up and speaking out about inequality, political issues, and the realities of their day-to-day lives, many continue to be treated as whispers in the void; hidden figures in the dark; shadows on the wall.

This is what moved us to launch We Are Not Shadows as the first book from Folkways Press. Learn more and purchase your copy today.

WHO WE ARE

Folkways Press is an up-and-coming independent publisher dedicated to the unconventional, the extraordinary, and the voices of those who’ve been buried within the margins for far too long.

With each book we publish, we strive to promote literacy, support charitable causes, and empower our authors and readers by taking the literary roads less traveled.

Here, we believe that for every voice, there is a story, and for every story, there is a book waiting to be written.

WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR

Our primary focus is on anthologies, novellas, essay/memoir, poetry collections, short story collections, and flash fiction collections.

Folkways Press will obtain these through open calls for submissions or direct contact. Any unsolicited submissions, proposals, or query letters will not be read or considered.

We are not seeking the following genres: romance, chick lit, horror, fantasy, or science fiction.

What we’re up to:

We are constantly hard at work making more of people’s words, stories, and lives accessible to new readers. Part of that work is launching our own Kickstarter! We are excited and proud to partner with people just like you through this process.
