Blood Orange Press is an independent publisher that is committed to filling literary gaps, not broadening them; filling them with stories that counteract stereotypes and limitation.
To be a literary home that recognizes, inspires, and strengthens diverse readers.
We believe that children and adults of all ages should have access to stories that recognize and lift up their individual power, dignity, and beauty.
We honor the many spectrums of racial, ethnic, gender, sexual, spiritual, economic, and experiential diversity.
We support the creation and sharing of stories based on one’s own heritage, experience, and community of origin. We speak for no one but ourselves, knowing that self-representation is an act of power.
We encourage reflection and growth from within.
Freedom from Judgement.
We meet and accept people where they are.
We come from a place of love, recognizing the interconnectedness of all things.
We are visionary in that our efforts aim to expand good in the world.
In all of our interactions, we value the physical, mental, and spiritual health of our partners, consumers, and selves.
