Ping-Pong Free Press
Henry Miller Memorial Library
Big Sur, California 93920
The Henry Miller Memorial Library champions the literary and artistic legacy of Henry Miller. This cannot mean only the writings of Miller himself. We may not have even known about Miller had it not been for Anaïs Nin. Miller existed at the peripheries of American literature, but his sources, and his influence, extend far beyond this country, to the international literary avant-garde.
Ping-Pong Free Press brings together a spectrum of influences and combines them with a radical social perspective on the nature of art and the human predicament. We are committed to promoting artists we love, and sharing our enthusiasm for their work with a global audience. We host poetry competitions each year, and will host a novella contest in 2017. We are also interested in publishing eco-poetics, perched as we are on the edge of the continent with condors flying overhead flipping the bird to extinction.
In the spirit of Henry Miller, who championed the disregarded, the liminal, and the censored, and who, above all, wanted to bring into the light writing and literature that troubled the elite, Ping-Pong Free Press will also seek to publish “genre” literature that has long been ignored by the academy and literary establishment. We hope to upend the literary world's expectations and expose readers to a wider, stranger universe.
Ping-Pong Free press is a member of CLMP and follow all guidelines therein.
