Ping-Pong Free Press brings together a spectrum of influences and combines them with a radical social perspective on the nature of art and the human predicament. We are committed to promoting artists we firmly believe in, and sharing our enthusiasm for their work with a global audience. There will be one poetry competition per year, and a novella contest. We are also interested in publishing eco-poetics, perched as we are on the edge of the continent with condors flying overhead flipping the bird to extinction.
The Henry Miller Memorial Library champions the literary and artistic legacy of Henry Miller. This cannot mean only the writings of Miller himself. We may not have even known about Miller had it not been for Anais Nin. Miller existed at the peripheries of American literature, but his sources, and his influence, extend far beyond this country, to the international literary avant-garde.
Ping-Pong has long been an incubator for emerging talent, In the spirit of Henry Miller, who championed the disregarded, the liminal, and the censored, and who, above all, wanted to bring into the light writing and literature that troubled the elite, Ping Pong Free press will seek to publish “genre” literature that has long been ignored by the academy and literary establishment. We hope to upend the literary world’s expectations and expose readers to a wider, stranger universe.
Ping-Pong Free press is a member of CLMP and follow all guidelines therein.
