Asymmetrical Press is a publishing company founded and operated by professional authors who firmly believe that in order to continue producing amazing, perspective-changing work, the publishing industry must break free of gatekeepers and become an industry of inclusivity and self-determination, where high individual standards of quality keep readers coming back for more.
This shift will manifest in different ways, but the core efforts revolve around empowering people who create high-quality work to take their creations to the next level.
That may mean working with us to publish work through Asymmetrical Press. It could mean pulling yourself up by your bootstraps and learning the industry yourself (alongside other enthusiastic creatives) at the Asymmetrical Community. It may mean going completely solo and making your own path, without a publisher or community at your back. All paths are equally valid and have our full support and enthusiasm.
Whatever the case may be, we want to be part of a positive movement in publishing. One that removes traditional hurdles and replaces them with trampolines. Instead of hindering, we want to liberate.
What we do right now — all of us, from the most experienced scribbler to the greenest wordsmith — has the potential to dictate what publishing will look like for decades. This is a responsibility and opportunity we don’t intend to let pass us by.
The publishing industry is evolving. Let’s evolve with it.
