Undiscovered Countries Press produces illustrated fiction and poetry. We pair emerging visual

artists and writers in collaboration on short

pieces - each creating a new work in response

to a piece of the other's.

These get published as program inserts

in our bimonthly Festival Programs, and

then compiled in the September Yearbook,

published in coordination with our

anniversary show.

We are currently accepting submissions

for the 2016 - 2017 yearbook! To have your

writing illustrated or your drawings written to,
