Pretty Owl Press
Pretty Owl Poetry is proud to announce that we are one of ten newly selected organizations that will participate in Prototype PGH’s 2020 Incubator. Prototype PGH is a nonprofit devoted to promoting gender and racial equity in technology and entrepreneurship. It will provide resources, workshops, and consultation to assist in the growth of our journal. These resources will also help us to establish a chapbook press called Pretty Owl Press.
Pretty Owl Poetry will begin publishing two chapbooks a year in conjunction with the quarterly journal issues starting in 2021. Like the literary journal, Pretty Owl Press will also publish socially conscious work from marginalized voices; however, this new venture will also help build authors’ careers through online advertisements, book launch celebrations, and sales facilitation. We are so excited to continue giving back to the literary community by joining the Prototype incubator cohort, the range of which—according to Prototype founder Erin Gatz—“underscores the true richness of Pittsburgh’s communities and cultures.”
And of course, this expansion would not be possible without our talented contributors. We look forward to further supporting our Pretty Owlers through the creation of Pretty Owl Press.
