Our Mission | Curious Curls Publishing.png

Mission Statment

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.

About Us

Curious Curls Publishing is a small literary press based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and established in 2021.


Curious Curls seeks to bring forth a new wave of literature from fascinating authors around the world.  While we place focus on curiosity, 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 aspects we love about the writing community.

As a lifelong reader who reads multiple books a month, she wants to pursue a career in publishing once she graduates. Alyssa loves to read all genres.  She especially loves fantasy and contemporary novels that have deep character development, a setting that can pull her into the story, and plot twists that make her want to throw the book across the room. When she's not reading and catching up on her TBR pile, she enjoys spending time with family, walking her sweet dog, Marvel, or creating content for her BookTok account.
