Welcome To Spider Road Press!

We publish and promote fiction by and/or about strong women. We believe that all brave, intelligent writing is literary, no matter what the subject matter. Writers, we invite you to embrace precision. Readers, we encourage you to stretch your imagination.


Celebrate with us on August 18th at 7pm at Writespace:
We can't wait to celebrate three years of bringing rich, risky fiction & poetry by diverse women to new audiences! Join us as we toast writing by and/or about strong women & recognize the talented winners of the 2016 Spider's Web Flash Fiction Prize. Enjoy free readings, refreshments, and an author signing. Don't miss this fun literary party. For address & directions, see our events page.

We are thrilled to announce the winners of the 2016 Spider's Web Flash Fiction Prizes! First prize has been awarded to Andrea Barbosa, second prize to Jennifer Leeper, and third prize to Melissa Algood. Thanks again to our contest judges Kathryn Kulpa and Eden Royce. Winners and honorable mentions will be published in a special bonus section of our 2018 release.

Summer Hours:
As our business is run by two working moms, we have reduced hours over the summer. Office staff will be available on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
