The Elephants are an independent, open-genre press publishing heterodox materials as acts of love and solidarity with the communities in which they’re created.
We encourage submissions from members of oppressed communities and communities underrepresented in publishing.
We publish two books a year, distributed by SPD. In May of each year we accept manuscript submissions to consider for publication. To get that reminder and be notified of new publications (nothing else), sign up here.
The Records collection is curated by our contributing editors: Alexis Almeida, David Buuck, Yanara Friedland, Genevieve Hudson, Andrew Joron, Joseph Massey, Art Middleton, Michael Nardone, Vi Khi Nao, Robert Andrew Andres Perez, Jr., Ed Skoog, and Sarah Vap.
Our advisory board is Omar Berrada, Steve Collis, Jeff Derksen, Chris Nealon, Caryl Pagel, M. NourbeSe Philip, Jonathan Skinner, Juliana Spahr, Mathias Svalina, and Alana Wilcox.
