Running Wild Press and RIZE Press both grew out of a desire to share stories that break barriers.
About Running Wild Press
Running Wild Press Mission
We believe that great stories don’t fit neatly in a box. Most stories available today are simply run-of-the-mill, unoriginal, and in the end, boring, which makes you feel tired and unheard. Our stories can’t be contained, neatly categorized, or homogenized; just like you.
About RIZE Press
RIZE Press Mission
RIZE Press publishes great stories and great writing across genres that are written by BIPOC and LGBTQ+ writers. At RIZE, we know you want to be entertained with stories that represent you, not some stereotype. You crave spellbinding narratives and innovative prose written by lesser represented authors. The problem is that there’s very little diversity in publishing and minority writers are rarely celebrated, which makes you feel invisible. We believe that your voice should be heard from the treetops.
