Sarabande Books was founded in 1994 by Sarah Gorham and Jeffrey Skinner who noticed a need for poetry, short fiction, and essay to have a home outside of literary journals. For the last 25 years Sarabande Books has set out to disburse these works with diligence and integrity.
In 1996 our first titles appeared on bookshelves we published 3 books that year. Over the last 25 years we have more than 220 titles under contract or in print, many of them prize winning. We could not have done any of this without support from our donors.
