Publisher's description: Catamaran Literary Reader is based in Santa Cruz, California. Our mission has been to produce a view of the world from a west coast perspective. We focus on the global themes of nature, the environment, artistic expression, world travel, and the breadth of human experience with the openness and expansiveness that arises from living on the Pacific rim.
We have published established authors, including: Gary Snyder, Galway Kinnell, Billy Collins, Wendell Berry, Ursula K. Le Guin, Karen Joy Fowler, and Jonathan Franzen, as well as young and emerging writers. We publish longer works as well as flash fiction, micro-memoirs, and prose poetry. There is no form or style we will not consider as long as the work is original and the voice is true. We also feature essays on the natural sciences, the environment, the arts, and history, as well as author interviews and works in translation.
