Since 1981 Negative Capability Press has been committed to publishing quality books of exciting and innovative poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. We work diligently with our authors and view our publishing endeavors as a mutual commitment toward excellence. We are a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization and are designated by the State of Alabama as a Domestic Nonprofit Corporation. Our press is managed by a volunteer collective dedicated to independent publishing. Every dollar we earn is put directly back into our press – whether it is publishing our next book, marketing our authors, maintaining our website or increasing our distribution opportunities. It is you, our valued supporters, that will allow us to continue to publish beautiful, innovative books by amazing authors. We appreciate your support!
