at the confluence of culture and creativity 

3: A Taos Press is an independent publisher committed to fostering and honoring the work of writers of all cultures.

We make these promises to our authors: We will treat each writer with honesty, respect, and creative encouragement. We will ensure that each book represents the ideals of its author in an artful and distinct way. We will bring each manuscript to publication in a thoughtful manner as a work to be read once—and then again.

The publisher is pleased to host readings, book signings, workshops, and ekphrasis events throughout the year across the United States featuring its list of contributors.

At this time, the editors are concentrating on the genre of poetry. Manuscript submissions are by invitation only.
