Small press pop quiz - Dzanc Books

20 February 2013 / Leave a Comment

What makes Dzanc Books different to other publishers?  
We are concerned solely with the quality of the writing. If a book is great we want to publish it. We do not look at the bottom line of marketability first. We look solely at the book and how well it is written. Dzanc is not only a great print publisher but our ebook series - rEprint - has set the standard in the industry for publishing past works of great fiction and nonfiction in ebook form. We also have several imprints. We are very supportive of other independent presses and journals. We fund and publish The Collagist and Absinthe literary reviews. Finally, we are also very much devoted to community work and provide many programs for free to schools and community outreach facilities.

What kind of manuscripts are you looking for?
High quality writing. Literary fiction and non-fiction.

If someone was to read two books on your list, what should they be?  
That’s tough. They are all great. We only publish great books. Recent publications that have met with critical success include My Only Wife by Jac Jemc, George Singleton's Stray Decorum and Luis Jaramillo's The Doctor's Wife.

What are you excited about for 2013?  
Working with Open Road on our rEprint series. Expanding of Writer in Residency programs and our online mentoring programs. New fiction from Roy Kesey and Jen Michalski as well as our entire 2013 list.
