Publishing Programs_edited_edited.jpg

Betty publishes books by women, for everyone. This imprint is for new, vital, and intersectional perspectives that amplify women's voices and challenge societal norms. 

This innovative imprint combines the best aspects of a traditional publisher and a collective publisher. Authors receive standard contracts, collaborate on publishing books, and help shape the imprint’s catalog.

WTAW is dedicated to discovering and promoting enduring books of literary prose. 

We open to submissions annually through the Kevin McIlvoy Book Prize, Alcove Chapbooks, and our new imprint, Betty.

We take exceptional care in editing, designing, and promoting our books. Here is a closer look at our process.
