The Chartering Manifesto of Craven Press

i.

It is the mission of Craven Press to counteract the ongoing neutering of American literature by providing raw, challenging narratives of contemporary life. In the vein of such writers as Hunter S. Thompson, William S. Burroughs, David Shields and Roberto Bola┼ło, Craven Press seeks literature that comments on, but does not necessarily celebrate the inherent depravity of modern life. Because the requirement of many publishing houses that submissions be sent via literary agent creates a defacto censorship of work prior to being received by the publisher, Craven Press will only accept submissions directly from the writer wishing to be published.

With Love,
The Editors.
