We are dedicated to the discovery and rediscovery of authors and works of outstanding literary merit and to wholeheartedly championing these books.
Muse Ink Press was established in 2012 out of the passion of one person to bring back in print the works of an author who deserves to be part of our literary heritage. This opinion is supported by many readers and academics. The author, Sanora Babb, was rediscovered by the public when her life and novel Whose Names Are Unknown was featured on the Ken Burns PBS Dust Bowl documentary. That was a perfect jump-start and our campaign to gain greater recognition for her is gaining traction with more readers and her books taught in colleges and universities around the country. Scholars are researching and writing papers on her life and her works and perhaps one day she will be part of the canon.
An original book we published, A Turn for the Verse, was one that tickled our fancy. Some may not consider it “literary” but the author’s way with words certainly is.
We are honored to be the publishers of Sandra Berris’ first collection of poems, Ash on Wind. She has won numerous awards and her poems appeared over the years in dozens of prestigious journals such as Prairie Schooner and Whetstone.
While we continue to support and promote these authors and their books, we are not accepting unsolicited manuscripts at this time.
