The rich and powerful narrative works of non-fiction that have landed on my desk since I started Upswell are keeping me stimulated. From essays to memoir to the lyric essay and everything in between in a hybrid kind of mood have impressed me enormously. Subscribe to Upswell as a gesture of solidarity and support! Independent publishing is a precarious financial business. Subscribing to a new publishing venture is one way of offering support. You sign up in trust of our eye for a good book and we’ll send you our releases in that year, postage-free in the month of publication. We pay attention at Upswell to both strong editorial standards and beautiful and robust design by Chil3. We are proud of this look. In the back of each book is the story of our font: Foundry Origin. Subscribe for yourself/your household, or give a subscription as a gift. With each subscription you receive a message from the publisher and the author: from Terri-ann about her selection of the book, and from the author about some aspect, or back story, of their book.
