We strive to publish and showcase work that embodies the cultural diversity of writers and artists; work that expresses family and forebears; work that connects with the soil, water, and air of place and home. To this end, Raven Chronicles Press will publish the work of traditional storytellers, along with experimental work in emerging forms of art and literature.
Besides producing books, Raven endeavors to reach as many readers and writers as possible, including especially those in underserved audiences and communities. We do this by donating books and conducting free readings and community events. Through these activities we seek to produce and disseminate literature that can make a difference in our lives and in the lives of future generations.
