Publisher Interview Series-How Do You Know Which Publishing Company Is A Good Fit For You -


Company: Forest Avenue Press

Publisher: Laura Stanfill

Company Mission/Vision:

Forest Avenue Press, founded in 2012 in Portland, Oregon, publishes page-turning literary fiction. Our titles are infused with a fresh, complex, sometimes nutty, and often-wondrous approach to storytelling.

Forest Avenue is the home of the Main Street Writers Movement. (Parades welcome.) As a publishing house, we empower authors with transparency, organize an intense number of book-related events, encourage our readers to shop at indie bookstores, and applaud the successes of other authors and independent presses.

Interview Recap:

  • Look on your bookshelf-what have you read that speaks to you? Who was publishing them?
  • Go to your local library and check out books that look like your book? Check who’s publishing that book?
  • Check out submission guidelines of the publisher to see if your book is a good fit for that publisher.
