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 the founder of Image—one of America’s leading literary journals, which he edited for nearly thirty years. He was also the founding director of the Seattle Pacific University MFA in Creative Writing program, which he led for twelve years. He currently edits a literary imprint, Slant Books, through Wipf & Stock Publishers. Wolfe’s writing has appeared in numerous publications, including the Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, First Things, Commonweal, and America. In 2005 he was a judge for the National Book Awards. His books include Beauty Will Save the World, Intruding Upon the Timeless, and The Operation of Grace.
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.
