Slant is a new literary imprint edited by Gregory Wolfe. Slant presents fiction that explores the mysteries of the human heart and understands that the truth of the human condition can only be approached indirectly, through metaphor and character. The novels published by Slant will be marked by the kind of meticulous craft and love for language that are harder and harder to come by in our age of instant publishing and literary gimmickry. These are books that will lodge themselves in readers’ lives.
Gregory Wolfe is Writer in Residence at Seattle Pacific University and the founding editor of Image. He also serves as director of the Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing program at SPU. In 2005 he served as a judge for the National Book Awards. Wolfe has published essays, reviews, and articles in a variety of publications, including the Wall Street Journal, First Things, and Commonweal. His essays have been anthologized in collections such as The Best Christian Writing and The Best Catholic Writing. His most recent book is Beauty Will Save the World: Recovering the Human in an Ideological Age.
Wipf and Stock Publishers
Established in 1995, Wipf and Stock is a growing publisher located in the Pacific Northwest. Committed to good ideas and developing relationships across boundaries, our list is unconventionally diverse and multi-disciplinary. We are inspired by writing that honors the imagination, intellect, and heart; and for that reason, we publish based on the merits of content, not marketability. Innovative and service-oriented, we are one of few publishers who handle every step of the publication process in-house, from acquisitions to printing to customer service. Our unique model means our books will always be in-print and available for ordering. We work hard to bring relationships back to the focus of publishing, because we believe in the value of voice.
