Our mission is to reduce racism, sexism, phobia, inequality, and ignorance by publishing impressive work from a diverse group of people, hopefully in an entertaining way but without shying away from topics that may be uncomfortable. We also want to improve the business of publishing. This mission seems even more important today.
It’s a cliché to discuss the relationship between new media and old, but for the last fifty years or so that’s been the topic, and in a funny way, we haven’t quite moved beyond that yet. It’s still a compelling argument for the emerging generation of aspiring publishers to shape the future of literacy, to build the books they want to read—exciting times indeed.
Write Bloody authors are diverse and out there—in small record shops and large colleges, in strange theaters and swampy bars—doing readings all across Europe, Australia and the United States. Going to a reading will one day be as common as going to the movies or to see a band and Write Bloody is currently paving the way. Our books are found in bookstores around the world from Guam to Berlin.
