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.
OUR KICKSTARTER IS LIVE!
Focused on the We Are Not Shadows Anthology, this all or nothing fund is finally here! Follow the links below to learn more about pledges, funding, and rewards in partnering on this literary adventure.CONTRIBUTE NOW
We turned to Kickstarter to launch our first book because we think it is the perfect platform to share these stories with a broad audience and, in pre-ordering copies of our book, it helps us launch more copies than savings alone will allow.

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. More details coming soon!
