Ideas Beyond Conventional

About Backlash

Backlash Press is an independent publishing house dedicated to releasing work that narrates a contemplated resistance to obedience and trend.

Our aim is to pioneer innovative authors above mass marketing sales potential by representing the experimental, yet enduring, fiction and poetry voices of our time.

We visualize a people’s press that’s artist and writer focused. We publish annual collections of poetry and prose in fine print and online editions.
