Laura Stanfill

Forest Avenue Presswinner of an Oregon Literary Fellowship, publishes page-turning literary fiction. Its titles are infused with a fresh, complex, sometimes nutty, and often-wondrous approach to storytelling.

The press was founded by Laura Stanfill in 2012, and titles include Landfall by Ellen Urbani, set during Hurricane Katrina and named a Women’s National Book Association Great Group Reads selection for 2015; Carry the Sky, a debut novel about boarding school bullying by award-winning poet Kate Gray; The Night, and the Rain, and the River, a collection of short stories by twenty-two Oregon authors and edited by Liz Prato; The Gods of Second Chances, Dan Berne’s debut novel about an Alaskan fisherman raising his granddaughter; and A Simplified Map of the Real World, linked short stories by Stevan Allred.

We are opening for national submissions in January 2016.

    What you have here is very exciting. Small presses such as Forest Avenue Press are greatly needed in this time of publishing house mergers.

  2. Laura, any recommendations for a non-fiction published that shares your attitudes? Happy to call you if is easier for you.
