The Humble Essayist 

The Humble Essayist Press is a publication platform for books of personal prose written by established authors who are producing a serious body of work over a lifetime. It specializes in books considered too risky commercially for mainstream publishers. Authors submit by invitation only and are chosen based on the quality of the manuscript, the strength of their past publications, and the contributions they have made as teachers, writers, and critics in the genres of personal essay and memoir.
