Our name is derived from the tenacious damselfly, a unique and highly independent insect capable of aerial acrobatics and known for her ability to travel as far as 900 miles off the coast to deposit eggs. Her remarkable compound eyes allow her the advantage of examining many aspects of her environment. At damselfly press, we are intrigued by the everyday seen through sundry lenses. We value writing that soars beyond common perceptions.
damselfly press seeks to promote exceptional writing by women. We welcome work from female writers of all experiences. We accept fiction, poetry, and nonfiction. We are interested in work that is honest and explores human nature. We think there is truth even in fiction.
