Pile is a passion project fueled by its founder and is inspired by the never-ending consumption, the ever-long stack of books to read and the curious creations made possible. Pile is a small independent press, publishing the creative works of women, non-binary and gender non-conforming artists. Our goal is to be an alternative styled, safe and welcoming collective for creators who are often under represented. With a passion for the weird and wild, Pile Press aims to combine sustainable publishing alternatives for those seeking artistic expression.
We publish poetry, short fiction, comix, and art. These works are published on a quarterly basis, seasonally. For more information, check out our SUBMIT page.
