Mission / History

Gasher Press is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit publisher. We are interested in fresh voices and innovative forms. Make everything useful. 

Who we are:

  • Gasher is made up of a volunteer staff so that we can focus our resources on writers. 

  • All profits from book sales and submission fees are reinvested in opportunities and prizes.

  • We champion our authors with gracious royalties, no preorder minimums, collaborative book design, and meaningful editing.

  • We work to create opportunities in editing, publishing, and awards for underrepresented writers and editors. We welcome feedback on how we are doing and how we can improve.

  • Our Bennett Nieberg Transpoetic Prize and First Book Scholarship are always free to submit to. 

  • We are micro. Meaning we are small but mighty. We can't offer tour stipends and we don't have a hired marketing person, but we work diligently to submit our books for prizes, attend book fairs, organize reading tours, and find review platforms.
