Welcome to Wingspress!

woman reading a book

We currently offer over 130 titles. Come on inside to discover the real corazón of American small press publishing.

Wings Press publishes multicultural books, chapbooks, ebooks and broadsides that, we hope, enlighten the human spirit and enliven the mind. Everyone ever associated with Wings has been or is a writer, and we know well that writing is a transformational art form capable of changing the world, primarily by allowing us to glimpse something of each other's souls. Good writing is innovative, insightful, and interesting. But most of all it is honest.

Likewise, Wings Press is committed to treating the planet itself as a partner. Thus the press uses as much recycled material as possible, from the paper on which the books are printed to the boxes in which they are shipped.

  • Face, Finalist for the 2014 Neustadt Prize for International Literature. Winner of: Gold Medal, Commonwealth Club of California, The Sue Kaufman Prize of the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters.

    "When I read Face in 1985, it struck me as an extraordinary achievement, all the more extraordinary for being a first novel. Rereading it has not changed my estimate. I am deeply impressed by this book, as much by what is said as by what is not said. I presume that it is humanly possible to do what Helio does to his face; and that it is not foolishly naïve to ask and answer questions about what it possible in the real world.... FACE continues to haunt me."
