Literati Press

Publisher info

Born in the fall of 2009 among like-minded authors, Literati Press is an effort to break down the barriers set up between emerging authors and the reading populace hungry for new and innovative voices.

With only a handful of projects published a year, Literati is more interested in developing authors rather than further glutting the book industry by publishing more projects than we truly care about.
