Inside the Castle is a small press operated from Lawrence, Kansas. We began operations in the spring of 2014.

Our books are unique from one another but share a vision, that literature is not representational but incantatory, that books are objects that exist much like other objects in your life and home, only they have additional dimensions, not dimensions separate or distant from the ones you occupy, but involuted dimensions that only become apparent when you reach out to them.

We are always accepting unsolicited, complete manuscripts of adventurous writing. Our books know they are books. They are highly language and format driven, invested in hybrid approaches, prose mistaken for poetry, poetry mistaken for nonfiction. We tend to like novels that could be read starting on any page. We tend not to be enamored by poetry collections, preferring book-length works, but do try to tempt us. Visit our contact page for details.
