The Los Angeles Press publishes the best in art & literature from established & emerging artists, historians & political discoursers, from Southern California, the West, & Beyond.
We’re committed to uplifting & focusing on Voices Yet Heard, including Women, BIPOC, LGBTQ+, as well as traditionally under-represented & marginalized artists & writers.
The Los Angeles Press is a Print and Online Publishing House & Imprint, first introduced by The Los Angeles Review of Books and the LARB/USC Publishing Cohort. We are devoted to community engagement, and to the pursuit of social, economic, and environmental justice.
Our projects include:
- Performance Texts
- Hybrid Genres
- Feminist Literature
- Literary Translation & Multilingual Texts
- Visual Art including performance art, painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, sculpture, installation, mixed-media, graphic narratives & comics
Note on Literary Translation:
Submission should include original work along with translation. We request a statement granting permission to publish both the original work & translation online, certifying you received permission from the original rights holder (either the publisher or the author, as applicable) to grant such rights.
The Los Angeles Press retains first North American serial rights of work published, to produce, reproduce, distribute, & market. All other remaining rights revert to the author upon publication. If the work is published again, we ask for a credit to indicate that work first appeared in The Los Angeles Press. We encourage submissions from all artists with connection to this place in the West.
