Why open a small press?

Someone once told me, “The greatest story ever told was probably never finished.” The idea might have manifested itself on the page, but  for one reason or another never made it to publication. 

I want to give those writers who have a great story to tell or stellar poems to share an outlet for their voice. I want to publish authors I believe in.

V Press is small. I like it that way. There’s more flexibility. I can publish works that are fresh and original, works that empower, educate, encourage or inspire–the best works are those that get into the bones. And I look forward to reading pieces that will live inside my marrow.
