Coffee House Press Branches Out

Leave a comment

Coffee House Press, a poetry magazine turned non-profit publishing company, has published its first young adult fiction.  Angel de la Luna and the 5th Glorious Mystery, the story of a young girl’s struggles in the Phillipines, is scheduled to be released in November.  Although the company’s mission statement is vague and all-inclusive, branching out of their literary fiction and poetry comfort zone may prove to be a challenge from a marketing standpoint.  A representative of the company insists that the press seeks content that promotes their mission statement, which includes enriching literary heritage, first and foremost and then figure out how to successfully market.  It will be interesting to see if, over the winter, Coffee House Press has the ability to add the unique marketing strategies that are required in the world of young adult fiction.
