Kenning Editions is one of the few publishing outlets keeping alive innovative and experimental writing that originates under, and responds to, the multiple indices of empire.—Tyrone Williams

A 501c3 non-profit, independent literary publisher founded in 1998, Kenning Editions began as a “newsletter” in the small press “little magazine” tradition. Since 2005 Kenning has published paperback books explicitly involved in a negotiation between political commitment and aesthetic quality. Work of this kind variously proves that “experimental” is not a stylistic feature or set of effects, but that risk and deliberation are mutually ramifying forces. Kenning Editions is a small press with a regular staff of one individual, who relies on the input of many, and now also your tax-deductible monetary contributions to continue.
