Wet Cement Press is the project of a group of writers who once lived and worked together in San Francisco, but we don't live there anymore. Our tastes in literature run toward the lyrical and spontaneous, the raw and unsmooth. We have worked in publishing in New York and San Francisco and Moscow, but are not being investigated for our Russian connections, as far as we know. Several of us were involved in the Five Fingers Review. One of us used to live in a tipi, another lives above a casino. Two of us were librarians, but no longer work there. We believe that the cement is always wet and that the world waits to be marked.



We are not currently accepting unsolicited manuscripts.
