Support Graywolf

Graywolf Press is more than just a publisher: we are a community of people—authors, editors, readers, and donors like you—who are brought together by a shared love of great books and a belief that diverse voices and opinions need to be represented in the world of letters.


As a leading independent nonprofit publisher, Graywolf Press is committed to the discovery and energetic publication of contemporary American and international literature. Precisely because we are a nonprofit, we are able to select books for their literary merit and content rather than solely for their commercial appeal.

“As the old song blows down to us: in a snowstorm, facing the icy winds, while the other animals drift and mourn, only the Gray Wolf laughs. While the other animals lie buried in the snow, only the Gray Wolf breaks a new trail running under the suns three shadows blue against the bright snow.”—Jeffrey Yang
