New Herring Press is a Brooklyn and Portland, Oregon-based prose chapbook press. Readers at the event will be Amanda Davidson, Azareen Van der Vliet Oloomi, Lynne Tillman, and Sara Veglahn, and New Herring editors will introduce the event and the individual readers. 

Fiction and nonfiction writers Jess Arndt, Sara Jaffe, Sara Marcus, and Jason Daniel Schwartz founded New Herring Press in Brooklyn in 2010. We’d known each other as friends and writing colleagues for years, and were engaged in ongoing conversations about our own work and the work of writers we loved. We were moved and inspired both by work labeled “experimental” or “innovative” and by work that cleaved more closely to convention. As writers, we found that our own work traveled between these poles, and we were frustrated in our attempts to figure out where our work fit in the contemporary literary landscape. We were also envious of the sense of community we saw amongst poets and poet-publishers, but which seemed sorely lacking in the realm of prose. We founded New Herring as a way to address all of the above concerns and desires: to create a small press that embraced stories, essays, polemics, and other prose forms that moved our hearts and brains regardless of their placement along the spectrum of convention, and to connect with and foster community among other writers and small-scale publishers of prose. We also set a goal of releasing work by both established and emerging writers.
