Artistic Voices of the New Millennium with a Southern Accent
SFK Press cultivates the diverse voices of the South with artistic expression as diverse as Brooklyn’s Williamsburg or Chicago’s Wicker Park.
What Exactly Is SFK Press?
The path for an artist to reach a wider audience is no longer exclusively controlled by corporate gatekeepers measuring each choice purely by its economic return. This is the founding premise of SFK Press, an independent publisher based in Metro Atlanta.
In the Deep South, where the bespectacled Flannery O’Connor inhabits every literary tick, the contemporary narrative is dynamic. We’re marching far beyond the cynical stories of the 20th century. Authors have dumped the askew pastorals on their asses. We recognize that cultivating new voices requires broadening the definition of Southern writing. The hero isn’t always represented in a conventional fashion.
On February 28, 2017, we released our debut title, Lying for a Living by Steve McCondichie. The inaugural novel contest broke ground at the 2017 AWP Conference & Book Fair. We are proud members of the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance (SIBA) and the Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA).
