Our mission is to cultivate curiosity by spreading literature that fosters creativity and observation. From a peculiar perspective, life takes on form beyond what we know.
Curiosity is a curious subject in itself. To be curious can mean to have an eagerness to learn, but it can also refer to the strange and bizarre. Is there a distinct difference between these two definitions? Can observation be separated from oddity? That's what we like to explore. We value work that arouses the complexities of the world around us.
Curious Curls Publishing is a small literary press established in 2021. Curious Curls is currently free-floating until it finds a permanent home. Most of our book sales and distribution are processed through print-on-demand services, such as Amazon KDP and IngramSpark, though we are also experimenting and expanding with every new project.
Our goal is simple. We want to publish fascinating stories. While we place focus on curiosity in its many forms, we are happy to accept all types of works from all authors.
Curious Curls also takes pride in being involved with writers beyond just book publications. We promote literary journals, presses, authors, and works we enjoy through projects like our Authors with Answers video segment. In the future, we hope to provide other opportunities to promote the works we enjoy and the people who made them.
