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.
SFK Press seeks book-length fiction by fearless authors. Our mission is to tell a million tales of y’all mean ALL, with a Southern accent. We especially encourage submissions from indigenous, LGBTQIA+, disabled, current or previously incarcerated, and non-binary people, women, and people of color.
