UPSET PRESS is an independent press based in Brooklyn.
The original impetus of the press was to upset the status quo through literature. The press has expanded its mission to promote new work by new authors; the first works, or complete works, of established authors, including restoring to print new editions of important texts; and first time translations of works into English. Overall, the Press endeavors to advance authors’ innovative visions and bodies of work that engender new directions in literature.
All books can be ordered directly from our distributor, University of Arkansas Press.
Established in 2000, UpSet Press organized readings and ran writing workshops until 2005, when it published its first book, Theater of War, by Nicholas Powers. The Press has increased its publishing efforts in recent years and has multiple titles forthcoming in 2013. The University of Arkansas Press became the official distributor of UpSet Press in 2011.
