Carrion Bloom Books is an independent press based in Salt Lake City.
We're focused on creating handbound small-edition books of poetry, prose, translation, and art.
Each year, we intend to publish two books or chapbooks and one print anthology. We are also making letterpressed broadsides, postcards, and other handmade ephemera as we go.
We admire work of all genres which might be described as: feminist, grotesque, ecologically resonant, too much, formally experimental, visually acoustic, radically embodied, transnational, or surreal (an incomplete list). We hope to promote work from marginalized communities and new or underrepresented writers.
We're inspired by other independent journals and presses including (but not limited to): Halophyte Collective, Action Books, Asymptote Journal, Radioactive Cloud, Deluge, co•im•press, Garden Door Press, Dream Pop Press, Birds of Lace, Ugly Duckling Presse, Apep Publications, Noemi, Entropy, All Snakes Press, and others.
We owe thanks to Claire Taylor, the artist who made our logo.
We are also grateful for the generosity of the groups, individuals, and spaces that have supported us so far--our books and press would be very different without them, including:
