About Us

Broken Column Press is based in Arlington, Virginia. Our publishing philosophy is to produce literary works of the highest quality. We do not aim to be the biggest. Our goal is to be the best we can be. We do not want to publish everything, only the best of what comes across our desks. We are young and scrappy and can feel the sun on our backs as we work the field. Sometimes we sing, but we are rarely in tune, or so we are told.

Most of all, we ain’t gonna work on Maggie’s farm no more.

Why the broken column?
The broken column is a striking reminder of impermanence and mortality. The living edifice we build with ourselves will, ere long, crumble and fall apart, as even King Solomon’s temple did. Broken Column Press attempts to resurrect works that were previously dead and bring new life to those still living.
