I solicit artists and authors worldwide, create submission schedules and deadlines, and edit all accepted pieces for content and style. The editorial process follows that of Raptor Editing guidelines, as in I am here to support your voice.

A big part of Raptor is making sure artists get paid for their work. After production costs are recouped, proceeds from book sales are split amongst contributors and Raptor Editing (so we can make more books), so every piece bought brings support to art and artists across the globe. Chapbooks can be purchased over at our store in both physical and digital editions.

All Raptor Press books are designed in-house. Each piece is hand cut, painted, printed and bound in about 3-6 months. 

If you are interested in commissioning work through Raptor, please reach out to me at HouseofRaptor[at]gmail[dot]com or route through our contact form and we’ll talk.
