About Us

Welcome to Autumn House Press! We believe literature is an affirmation of the deep and elemental range of our human experience, and our need for it is as crucial now as it ever has been. Autumn House is committed to publishing first books and lesser-known authors who will become the important voices of their generation as well as the prominent writers of our age. We pledge to edit this work with devotion and care and to create beautiful books that are worthy of it.

We hope you’ll explore our selection of extraordinary poetryfictionnonfiction, and anthologies—for your own enjoyment, for classroom use, or as gifts for friends and colleagues. You can also learn about our annual Poetry, Fiction, and Nonfiction prizes, as well as our online journal, Coal Hill Review.
