Welcome to The Crumpled Press

Liberated from the waste and uncrumpled to inspire: this is The Crumpled Press. We publish original work
by new authors and provide a space for established writers to say something new. Our titles stand out as contributions to contemporary thought, politics, and style. We aim to create an audience for good writing instead of packaging writing for a target audience.

We perish to publish.
