Awst Press

Awst Press is an independent literary publisher in Austin, TX featuring impressive work from diverse voices. We publish authors whose work fits our aesthetic and fulfills our vision of inclusivity and community. Our authors have come to us through a variety of means—guest-curated chapbook or essay series, reading events, and blind contests. This year’s most popular titles include Donald Quist’s Harbors and Erin Pringle’s Hezada! I Miss You. Also, we are launching presales for Brian Phillip Whalen’s forthcoming book, Semiotic Love [Stories], which is the first of our semifinalists from our 2019 Book Prize contest.
