Since 2019, we’ve been a community dedicated to the collective dreaming of aspiring writers living in Massachusetts. As the publishing landscape continues to change, we are committed to providing supportive space and community to aspiring writers.
Our small press will launch in 2023 with a literary journal and will expand to publish Guild-Member books in 2024.
