Prolific Press Inc.

Our Mission:

To support artists and celebrate Poetry, Fiction, Non-Fiction, and Visual Mediums. Prolific Press strives to discover and publish great literary works by writers in the United States and abroad. We support the arts through education and by providing venues for publication. We also support the community of literary journals by providing our Green Submissions service at no cost. This assists new and existing publishers in accepting online submissions.

As part of this mission, Prolific Press ensures that many of the services we provide are accessible to everyone, regardless of income. For this reason, we regularly offer free opportunities to read portions of our journals online. We never charge a reading fee for standard submissions. Prolific Press never charges writers a fee for publishing, and encourages the writing community by providing small token payments for their work. 

Prolific Press maintains a current and relevant collection of videos to assist writers with writing techniques, forms of writing, and other arts education. These videos are freely available online.
