Join us

We welcome your participation in the WTAW Press community.
We appreciate creative thinkers, lovers of literature, and those who want to support our mission and values of bringing good into the world through the written word. We welcome community members who are representative of and appreciate all backgrounds and experiences, including but not limited to diversity of ethnicity, culture, gender, sexual orientation, geography, and socioeconomics.
There are many ways to get involved.


Publishing books and supporting writers is a challenge in the best of times. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, WTAW Press can always use your financial support. Your donations directly enable us to execute on our mission to support writers, foster literary community, and inspire a passion for literature through book publishing and through our programs, including Why There Are Words, our national neighborhood of author readings. You can make a contribution directly online here.


If you prefer, mail your check to WTAW Press, PO Box 2825, Santa Rosa, CA 95405.


You can also donate by text message. Text 44321, and enter “wordluv” (no quotation marks).


We aren't choosy, only grateful for your help. All donations are tax exempt to the fullest extent of the law.


WTAW Press invites highly-motivated people who are interested in nonprofit literary publishing, communications, marketing, community relations, and literary community building to get in touch. Please note that all available positions are unpaid (though we are pleased to assist with helping you obtain college credit, if that is an option), are part-time, and require that you use your own computer to complete tasks remotely.

We value creative self-starters who are comfortable with both taking initiative and working in collaboration. Energy, enthusiasm, dedication, reliability, and responsibility are important. We have positions available in book publicity and marketing, social and media content, website administration, newsletter communications, development activities, and editorial assistance. Occasionally, we are open for new first readers. See more information here. We are open to new ideas, synergies, and partnerships.
