RED OCHRE PRESS
"It is a mysterious and complicated business, bringing together muscles and brain, memory and desire, and a rhythm of motions and subconscious impulses...No wonder most good writers approach writing with just a twinge of terror in their bones." --Richard Marius
RED OCHRE PRESS exists as a publishing house and a community advocate for all things literary and educational. We publish premier, contemporary literature. This includes poetry, fiction, nonfiction, interviews & essays. While our primary goal is to showcase the work of experienced authors, we feature emerging writers as well. A multicultural organization, we venerate voices from around the world, taking pride in writers whose work is both innovative and captivating.
This organization was founded on the belief that reading and writing are becoming dying pastimes. In a world where people choose daily to flip through 1,000 channels instead of pages, writers must perfect their work and present it via widely accessible media venues. First and foremost, however, we, as writers, must lose our fear of rejection and submit polished pieces for publication.
Truly, this represents the crux of RED OCHRE LiT, BLACK&WHITE, CATEGORY 2, and ROLiT NEWS, resoiling the grains of our literary ancestors and what they worked so hard for.
To really drive this notion home, RED OCHRE PRESS offers a number of local workshops to help both writers and students refine their crafts. We have groups geared for youths and adults. Our FELLOWSHIP PROGRAMS not only usher fellows into their creative zones, but also takes them through an actual publication journey, and several programs--due to our unwavering focus on youth and education--are geared specifically to help revive struggling students and their performance in school. Students mold their skills, those academic and creative, and many create powerful literature as they build a readership. This is paramount in a literary universe and it is key to reviving the world's interest in reading.
You will also be thrilled to learned about our new REVIEW & PROMOTION SERVICES. Learn how RED OCHRE PRESS can help in your publication journey. We review manuscripts, offer editorial suggestions to strengthen pieces, and help to promote your work!
SIDE NOTE: RED OCHRE LiT & BLACK&WHITE are currently accepting submissions and we invite you to read our past archives and SUBMIT your work! It is because of the literature that we publish, that our mission work flourishes. The sales of our books buttress our social work within so many communities. Submit your work and join in our "Literature for a Cause" movement.
Lastly, monetary donations not only help maintain a foundation for our works, all of which are printed, but aids in our literary and educational missions. We ask that you participate in our KEEP RED OCHRE ALIVE CAMPAIGN.
Cheers to yet another wave of reading & writing!
Until next time,
