We promise to publish books and anthologies by authors whose works desperately need to be told--mainly, those targeted for their race, gender, sexuality, and/or (dis)ability who are told that their stories are unmarketable.
Each year, Athenian will publish one volume of its anthology that will feature a broad range of voices and styles. To the founders of Athenian, diversity in publishing means not just race, but also gender identity, religious upbringing, socioeconomic status, mental health, sexual orientation, etc. Please consider this when submitting your work.
In addition to our anthology, Athenian Press hopes to publish one full-length book project each year, whether it be a novel, memoir, poetry collection, or something in between. Our press will give the opportunity for a woman/trans/GNC author to find a home for their book, and we are excited by the prospect of publishing new & emerging writers.
