Publisher’s description: Haunted Waters Press is an independent publisher located in the shadows of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia along the banks of the Shenandoah River. Ten years ago, our family embarked on a journey to celebrate outstanding works of fiction and poetry from new, emerging, and established authors. With no ties to genre, theme, or style, our mission is simple: to publish “good writing.” We seek out stories and poetry to entertain, captivate, and haunt the hearts of our readers for years to come.
If you are new to the press, please visit our website to get to know us better. There you will discover our story and our passions, submission details, and links to publications, including our illustrated literary journal From the Depths and our most recent project, Tin Can Literary Review—a collection of short stories told from across the way. Within the pages of our online literary journal, SPLASH!, you will find a steady stream of fiction and poetry, author interviews, and news from the press.
Just as every river has a source—the place where the flow originates and the river's journey begins—so too does our journey, and it begins with our contributors. Paid print publication, original illustrations, featured author interviews, and annual awards are just a few of the ways we express our gratitude for that continuous flow of "good writing" and the lasting friendships created along the way. Visit the HWP Contributor Showcase to meet and celebrate our growing family of contributing authors and poets. Enjoy!
