Founded in 2010, Sibling Rivalry Press is an independent publishing house based just outside of Little Rock, Arkansas, in the small town of Alexander. Our mission is to develop, promote, and market underground artistic talent—those who don’t quite fit into the mainstream. Our vision is to create literary and poetic rock stars.
Sibling Rivalry Press is proud to be the home of Assaracus, the world’s only print journal of gay male poetry. Several Sibling Rivalry Press titles have been honored by the American Library Association through its “Over the Rainbow” list of recommended LGBT reading, including Ocean Vuong’s Burnings, Kevin Simmonds’ Collective Brightness: LGBTIQ Poets and Faith, Religion & Spirituality, and Bryan Borland’s My Life as Adam. While we champion our LGBTIQ authors and artists, we are an inclusive publishing house and welcome all authors, artists, and readers regardless of sexual orientation or identity.
