Essay Press is dedicated to publishing artful, innovativeand culturally relevant prose. We are interested in publishing single essaysthat are too long to be easily published in journals or magazines, but tooshort to be considered book-length by most publishers. We are looking foressays that have something to say, essays that both demand and deserve to standalone. We particularly welcome work that extends or challenges the formalprotocols of the essay, including, but not limited to: lyric essays or prosepoems; experimental biography and autobiography; innovative approaches tojournalism, experimental historiography, criticism, scholarship and philosophy.

The Conversant is happy to announce its merger with Essay Press. Andy Fitch will be Essay’s new editor. Cristiana Baik will be its managing editor. Christopher Schmidt will serve as editor at large. We look forward to working with Essay’s founding editors Catherine Taylor, Stephen Cope and Eula Biss. Here we offer Fitch’s 2011 interview with Taylor concerning Essay Press. This interview first appeared in Cream City Review 36.1.

Andy Fitch: You’ve founded respected publications before, the Harwood Review and New Ohio Review. Could we start by discussing if, initially, you’d thought of Essay Press as an extension of those projects, if you envisioned the press making a pointed intervention into contemporary publishing (specifically into creative nonfiction or poetry, or as critique of any clear demarcation between those fields)?
