About Deep Wild Books

Deep Wild Books is the imprint of the journal Deep Wild: Writing from the Backcountry.

We are a collaborative publisher, working closely with authors in every aspect of the process of bringing a book into being: editing, designing, printing, and promoting. There are scores of decisions to be made along the way, large and small, which we help our writers navigate. We are committed to bringing the same close attention and high standards to Deep Wild books that distinguish our work with the journal.

As part of our publishing model, writers assume costs in advance and retain full ownership of the books.

Our intention is to publish two titles a year, some to be chosen by invitation, some by general submission. We anticipate making our first call for general submissions in Fall 2022.
