On February 1, 2020, Word Project Press will close.
Melody Young will continue doing similar work for current WPP authors. She is developing a website to explain her services and to guide current authors regarding books they published with WPP. A link to that website will soon appear here.
Word Project Press(WPP) is a community-based press that focuses on creating the opportunity for local authors to see their work published. The WPP team works collaboratively with the author throughout the process to ensure their dreams are realized.
The Word Project Press is an independent literary press, founded in 2012. Initially, it was created in response to a need within the writing community of the Mother Lode in the foothills of the Sierras in California. In 2014, we started accepting work from authors living further afield. However, we continue to focus on providing local talented writers the opportunity to publish their work more directly than through the mainstream publishing channels. Our aim is to publish collections of short stories and poetry, as well as innovative fiction and creative non-fiction.
