About Us

Paris Press is a small not-for-profit press publishing literature by women that has been neglected or misrepresented by the mainstream publishing world. Founded in 1995 in rural Ashfield, Massachusetts, Paris Press publishes one to three books per year. Our tag line is "daring and beautiful books," and we place special emphasis on beautiful design as well as essential and ground-breaking content. Our distinguished titles include Muriel Rukeyser's The Life of Poetry; Open Me Carefully: Emily Dickinson's Intimate Letters to Susan Huntington Dickinson; Ruth Stone's National Book Critics Circle Award-winning Ordinary Words; and Virginia Woolf's book-length essay On Being Ill.

Paris Press books, authors, and the Press itself have received over 200 reviews and features in the national media, including The New York Times Book Review, "Fresh Air" (NPR), The New Yorker, The Nation, The Los Angeles Times Book Review, The New York Review of Books, The Atlanta Journal Constitution, The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinal, The Dallas Morning News, The Philadelphia Inquirer, and The Boston Globe.

Paris Press books are available online and in bookstores nationally and in Canada, and directly through the Paris Press office and website.
