Scorpion Baby Press is a small-batch independent press based in the heart of Texas. The press was established in 2019.

SBP aims to center and prioritize the work of marginalized and underrepresented writers in the books we choose to publish. We look for chapbook- and short novella-length manuscripts that play with genre and form; we feel the distinction between “literary” and “genre” work can be limiting and seek writing from and within the margins.

In other words, we want to create space for voices and styles – whether in fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, or hybrid forms – that are not seen often (or at all) in the mainstream publishing industry. For more detail on what we mean by this, please see our Submissions page.
