brooklyn arts press


I started Brooklyn Arts Press in 2007 by publishing my own book. Since then, I’ve added many new emerging artists & literary authors to the catalogue, in what continues to be a growing community.



Brooklyn Arts Press (BAP) is an independent house devoted to publishing poetry books, lyrical fiction, short fiction, novels, art monographs, chapbooks, translations, & nonfiction by emerging artists. We believe we serve our community best by publishing great works of varying aesthetics side by side, subverting the notion that writers & artists exist in vacuums, apart from the culture in which they reside and outside the realm & understanding of other camps & aesthetics. We believe experimentation & innovation, arriving by way of given forms or new ones, make our culture greater through diversity of perspective, opinion, expression, & spirit.

Our staff is comprised of literary loyalists whose editorial resolve, time, effort, & expertise allows us to publish the best manuscripts we come across.
