Forest Avenue Press publishes literary fiction on a joyride. Titles are infused with a fresh, complex, sometimes nutty, and often-wondrous approach to storytelling. Founded in 2012 in Portland, Oregon, and distributed by PGW, Forest Avenue keeps its catalog small to build strong author-publisher relationships and maximize the hours and dollars we can put into each book. 

Our 2018 open submission period is now closed. Thanks to everyone who took the time to share work with our committee of women readers. This has been our most competitive period ever, despite being our shortest, both in terms of quality and quantity. 

We pour a lot of personal time and dollars into our books, while helping other small presses and their authors navigate the publishing industry.

If you like what we do, consider offering a small donation. We'll put the money toward future titles and continued promotion of backlist titles. 

Thank you for supporting small presses!
