Publishing

Publish Your Book

Flatpage, a new hybrid press, publishes books written by subject-area experts with strong ideas that are expressed in a clear and accessible way for wide audiences. Our editors, all of whom are trained and vetted, can help you craft your text so that your ideas make an impact.

What is hybrid publishing?

Hybrid publishing differs from traditional and self-publishing in terms of who takes on the financial burden and who ensures that editorial and publication standards are met. With a hybrid press, you’ll share the financial risk and you’ll be guided through the process toward the completion of a professional-quality book.

Thematic Overview

We welcome submissions for intellectual and engaging books on a range of topics. We’re particularly interested in subjects that resonate socially, culturally, and politically, and that offer fresh viewpoints and a critical reassessment of “current” topics. Flatpage is dedicated to empowering our authors, and we want to publish books that do the same for readers.

“When I sit down to write a book, I do not say to myself, ‘I am going to produce a work of art.’ I write it because there is some lie that I want to expose, some fact to which I want to draw attention, and my initial concern is to get a hearing.”

George Orwell
“Words can be like X-rays, if you use them properly—they'll go through anything. You read and you're pierced.”
Aldous Huxley
