The Mission of Swan Isle Press

Swan Isle Press is an independent, not-for-profit, literary publisher dedicated to publishing works of poetry, fiction and nonfiction that inspire and educate while advancing the knowledge and appreciation of literature, art, and culture.

Since its inception in 1999, a special interest of the Press is publishing books related to Spanish and Latin American literature, art, and culture. When possible and editorially appropriate, the Press issues these works in bilingual editions, in the original Spanish with English translations. The imprints for literature with Spanish language or Hispanic cultural content are La Isla del Cisne Ediciones (and El Cisne Negro Ediciones).

The Press' bilingual editions and single-language English translations make contemporary and classic texts more accessible to a variety of readers. Our bilingual editions recognize the still largely unmet publication needs of the important and growing Spanish-speaking population within the United States.

Swan Isle Press books are distributed and marketed by the University of Chicago Press, nationally and internationally. Our books are also available through Ingram; Baker and Taylor; and a number of Spanish-language book distributors.
