Unbound Edition Press, based in Atlanta, announced its expansion plans today. The independent press will now publish literary works by emerging, overlooked and LGBTQ+ authors, and will focus on publishing collections of poetry, short fiction and essays. New titles currently under development have a planned release date of October 2021.
“I believe deeply that authors with challenging or difficult viewpoints need a publishing home,” said Patrick Davis, the publisher of Unbound Edition Press. “Literary and artistic dissent is absolutely vital today, and we don’t have enough of it. I think it is critical that the complexities and injustices of contemporary life face examination and exploration by authors who are often pushed to the edges or ignored,” he said.
Patrick Davis is a poet and essayist. His most recent work has been featured in Great River Review and Provincetown Arts. He also has developed and ghost-written five books for major publishing houses. Under the mentorship of William H. Gass, he conducted his graduate research in American literature at Washington University in St. Louis. He previously worked as a consultant to leading print and digital publishers and media companies.
Unbound Edition Press began as a digital publishing project, and was originally launched in February, 2007. It published the print edition of The Best of Unbound Edition in 2014.
