Lanwyn Gardens Press is an Independent Publisher of books. We speak up for the people who can't speak for themselves.

We publish books the mainstream presses tend to leave behind. Words that need to be spoken. Voices that need to be heard.

We have style. A thirst for the unusual, those subjects that are often disregarded.

The ideal books we want to find are the ones where someone took one glance at it on the shelf at the bookstore and realized it was something they wanted or even needed; a book they put in the pile of books they would sell to a used book store only if they were going to be evicted and needed rent money.

To All Writers, We Want YOU!

You are from a different world, with new ideas and different perspectives.

We want your voice to fill the cathedral, echo around the mountaintops, and explode off the page, leaving the readers talking about it for days, weeks, months afterwards.

Books we publish include poetry, fiction, literature of radicalism, gender issues, Queer Studies, erotica, cookbooks, photography, art and art history, books about writing and writers, country living, green living, simple living, outdoor recreation, gardening and organic farming.

Or if you have another great idea, feel free to propose it. We are open to most things, as long as they are not like everything else being published today. Just please, nothing conservative or prejudicial. If you have something like that, I'm sure it's well written and thought out. Send it to one of the crazy Republican or Christian publishers, where it will be read and appreciated.

All manuscripts should be in 12-point type, with at least one-inch margins, and sequentially numbered pages. Fiction and nonfiction should be double-spaced. Poetry should be single-spaced. The author’s name, address, telephone number, and email address should be typed at the top of the first page. Contributors are asked to include a brief biographical note with their submissions.

Submissions may be sent to us at any time, year-round.

We accept multiple submissions, since we feel that it’s unreasonable to expect writers to give a small press an exclusive look at a work unless the publisher can at least respond with general comments about a work within two to three weeks. We want writers to have every possible opportunity for success, so we’re willing to risk losing a story we want when another publisher may have done their reading before we have, and in that case we’ll be sorry to lose the piece but happy for the writer.

We understand that writers have to make a living, but we hope you too understand that small presses have to do the same. With that in mind, in order to avoid having to charge an annoying reading fee, we are only able to pay in copies of the book. This may change in the future as we evolve, but at the present time, please submit us work with this understanding.
