About Us

Penstroke Press was initially established in 1997 as a School-to-Work nonprofit publishing venture, in partnership with two long established local publishing companies, Schenkman Books, Inc. and Inner Traditions International, in Rochester, Vermont. From the beginning, Penstroke Press published theatrical works.

During its early years, professionals from the parent companies developed the Penstroke Press catalog within an educational environment, mentoring students in all aspects of the publishing business, from acquisition, through production and distribution.

In 2008, Penstroke Press was restructured, with a new focus that goes beyond its initial educational model. It remains purposely a small company that values content over quantity, with the intent of longevity for its publications. Manuscript acquisitions primarily concentrate on, but are not limited to, the works of emerging poets and playwrights, as well as other more established literary artists, who are seeking alternate publishing venues.

Penstroke Press aspires to discover freshness of vision, as well as introduce and renew artistic literary voices into print, with the understanding that new voices are not necessarily young voices.
