Left Fork is a small press based in Southwest Oregon. One of our primary goals is creating books celebrating the people and culture here (and here is defined loosely–maybe let’s say we span the full Klamath-Siskiyou bioregion of Oregon and Northern California). If you’re a local author or your work focuses on this region, Left Fork might be a good fit. That said, we also seek to publish the best possible writing, particularly the highest quality poetry through our Flowstone imprint. If that brings us strong authors and artists from elsewhere, we’re excited to meet you and share your work with the world. We work closely with authors to create a book they can be proud of. We also have a strong focus on supporting young writers, by publishing their work alongside that of more seasoned writers (the literary journal Cobra Lily being one such place).
