Wet Cement Press is a micro-press started by a group of writers who once lived and worked together in San Francisco, but we don't live there anymore. We have worked in publishing in New York and San Francisco, several of us were involved in the Five Fingers Review. Our tastes run toward the lyrical and spontaneous, the raw and unsmooth. We are interested in writers & artists who are established in their craft but have not yet been recognized, perhaps because their work is not easily classifiable, or because it falls outside of current trends and approaches. We also support work by more recognized writers and artists that represents a departure from what they are generally known for. We believe that the cement is always wet and that the world waits to be marked.
