Peach Press

Peach Press located in Colorado Springs CO

Peach Press, based in Colorado Springs, is a radical small press dedicated to publishing writers and artists who have been historically marginalized.

Peach Press believes in disseminating art and literature from under published voices is a uniquely powerful tool for rewriting cultural narratives. They strive to produce an accessible avenue for publishing works at low to no cost to the artists/authors.

A quick look at the current demographics of publishing: according to a comprehensive study by Lee and Low, the first ever Diversity Baseline Survey in publishing, the entire industry is comprised of 78% of white publishers, 88% of whom are heterosexual, 92% are Non-disabled and 78% are cis-women. In addition, while cis-women are over-represented in the production side of the publishing industry while they are still heavily under-published as artists/authors/thinkers. Vida, a nonprofit literary organization created to track the publishing industry’s gender gap, reported that only one third of surveyed participants from major literary and new sources published women in 2015.
