Mission

Switchback Books challenges gender inequity in literary publishing by producing and promoting books of poetry by women and non-binary authors. Publishing exclusively women and non-binary poets comprises a feminist act. We aim to change the unbalanced ratio of genders represented in literary publishers’ catalogs, making women’s voices and perspectives accessible to the literary community and the general public.
