Parlor Press has been an independent publisher of scholarly and trade books and other media in print and digital formats since 2002.

I think they need to update their entry page, but other than that, it looks interesting. Maybe next time I will propose for their Writing for Reading series. And, who knows, maybe I’ll try to get a Free Verse Edition published as well.

Utah State UP imprints CCDP–Computers and Composition Digital Press

CCDP is committed to publishing innovative, multimodal digital projects. The Press will also publish ebooks (print texts in electronic form available for reading online or for downloading); however, we are particularly interested in digital projects that cannot be printed on paper, but that have the same intellectual heft as a book.

The goal of the Press is to honor the traditional academic values of rigorous peer review and intellectual excellence, but also to combine such work with a commitment to innovative digital scholarship and expression. For the Editors, the Press represents an important kind of scholarly activism–an effort to circulate the best work of digital media scholars in a timely fashion and on the global scale made possible by digital distribution.

AND a list of many comp journals, which I would have liked to have known where to find last year. I may have to publish a separate post for this.
