ELJ Editions was founded in 2013 dedicated to emerging writers, however they may define that parameter, regardless of age, background, or how they identify. We want to amplify fresh voices to audiences excited to support their growth.
What’s emerging, you ask? Emerging doesn’t necessarily mean new to writing, but a jumping off point to publishing or sharing work with a broader audience; emerging is writers figuring out their voices, experimenting with style, exposing work that is raw and vulnerable. Whether you’re a new writer, a writer new to publishing, or a writer with experience experimenting with their style of work, we dedicate ourselves to you. Where do you and your work fall? You decide.
We love, prefer manuscripts with passion, voice, and place. We look for succinct images and dialogue that linger, narrative that we can take with us to bed at night, ideas used in magnificent ways. Bring us your castles.
We at ELJ Editions believe that collectively, our differences make us stronger, enrich our lives, and bring innovation and creativity across the literary community. We commit to cultivating a culture of inclusion and belonging where all authors know that their voices and perspectives will make a difference. We realize we have work to do to reach this goal. We welcome writers of every race, color, culture, religion, belief system, gender identity, gender expression, age, national or ethnic origin, ancestry, citizenship, education, ability, health, neurotype, marital/parental status, socio-economic background, sexual orientation, and those identities and experiences not specified here. ELJ Editions is passionate about supporting diversity, equity and inclusion in wider society through publishing and amplifying diverse content. We are committed to building an inclusive small press. Diversity is one of the cornerstones of a vibrant, literary culture, and we are working hard to build a press that is more equitable and representative of the evolving community we serve and of which we are a part.
Be Well. Write Well. Read Well.
