ABOUT PROPELLER BOOKS
Propeller Books is an independent press run by a group of writers and editors interested in creating well designed books of high literary merit. There are no full-time employees—the editors who run Propeller Books make their livings elsewhere. This arrangement offers the company a degree of artistic freedom.
We do not take submissions. In the course of their work lives, our editors read, write, speak, or otherwise collaborate with many other writers, designers, and artists. Propeller Books exists to publish the work of these writers and others we admire. We are primarily interested in literary projects and forms that business-driven publishers often pass over because they feel the projects will not generate enough profit. We currently publish and promote one title per year. In addition to being available for purchase through our website, our books are available from large online book retailers, as well as in many independent bookstores.
Propeller magazine, our sister project, is a literature, film, art, and culture magazine that includes original fiction, poetry, criticism, and essays; interviews with writers, musicians, and artists; and various hard-hitting puff pieces or targeted ephemera.
