HOW YOUR GIFT HELPS

Monica Hand Launch.JPG


Alice James is a not-for-profit organization that publishes books that matter by authors who have important stories to tell and is dedicated to collaborating with writers to foster their artistic growth and engagement with the public. Many books by Alice James authors drive conversations about important social issues we’re facing right now, bringing individuals across the nation into closer conversation with one another via literary art.

The press is unique in its collaborative approach with artists. We work closely together during all phases of a book’s life to produce a collection that not only tells a powerful story but that resonate aesthetically with readers nationwide.

Your gift sustains our work, supporting established and emerging writers who might otherwise go unheard in telling their stories, connecting with their audiences, and ultimately building and growing a more understanding, equitable, and just community through literature.
