Supporting Swan Isle Press

Swan Isle Press is an independent, not-for-profit publisher. In addition to the support of our readers and those who purchase our books, we also rely on the friendship, goodwill, and assistance of many others to sustain us in achieving our mission. The Press has received generous grants from local and foreign government agencies, support from foundations and trusts, as well as donations from individuals and "in-kind" contributions. As Swan Isle Press continues to grow, so do our needs. We hope you will consider supporting us in our mission.

Swan Isle Press was founded in 1999 to publish works of poetry, fiction and nonfiction that inspire and educate while advancing the knowledge of literature, arts, and culture. The Press seeks out the best available manuscripts and acquires important new and original works on the basis of their literary merit, rather than strictly commercial concerns.

The works Swan Isle publishes reflect the rich diversity of our country and the universal and humanistic aspects of literature at its best. As the Press continues to grow, we are fully committed to extending our list of titles into many different literatures.

An integral part of our mission is actively reaching out to the community and visiting public venues with our books and authors to encourage reading and intellectual discourse, and to spur interest in literature, language, art, and culture.

Donations directly support the Press' growth, helping to fund, in part, our editorial mission, book design, production and printing, marketing and sales, advertising and distribution as well as general operating expenses. Contributions also assist with defraying costs related to community outreach, participation in literary and academic conferences, national and international book exhibitions, neighborhood, community and school/ university events, and author readings, all of which help make our books accessible to more people.

All levels of financial support are appreciated and are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
