Flexible Press began in 2017 with the publication of Tales of Block E, three short novellas about life in 1979 on the most notorious block in Minneapolis.
Then in 2018, we published Lake Street Stories, 12 short stories from different authors about Minneapolis’s own Lake Street. All profits were donated to CLUES (Comunidades Latinas Unidas en Servicio), a nonprofit whose East Lake Street offices were heavily damaged in a fire.
It has been successful beyond our expectations, and a business model was born, one of editing and publishing works to benefit the community.
What does “Home” mean to you?
Coming Spring 2020
Flexible Press is seeking Minnesota-connected short stories, memoir, poetry, and plays for this upcoming anthology. 100 percent of profits will go to Alliance Housing http://www.alliancehousinginc.org/, a Minneapolis non-profit dedicated to making it possible for individuals and families to create homes for themselves, regardless of income and background.
We are looking for worthy causes and more than worthy book ideas! Got an idea? Consider editing your own anthology to benefit a non-profit. If we like your idea, we can be your publisher and help you all along the way. This is not a money-making scheme; it will cost you nothing. And while you won’t make a nickel (and neither will we), you will be supporting your cause. Let’s talk!
