Awst Press is an independent literary publisher in Austin, TX featuring impressive work from diverse voices. 

We publish authors whose work fits our aesthetic and fulfills our vision of inclusivity and community. We endeavor to support authors through each project and beyond by increasing their respective audiences, playing an active role in the editorial and publishing process, promoting their activities well past their publication with Awst via the website and social media, and seeking ways to compensate them for their efforts by offering generous royalties and identifying grants for which they might be eligible. Authors are provided an author page on this website, and updates on authors, news, and upcoming events are posted regularly on Facebook and Twitter.  


We are not currently open to unsolicited submissions except via our Book Prize. If / when this changes, information will be posted on this page and advertised widely via social media. Best wishes in your publishing endeavors.
