We are NLSP
and we create books.

Founded by Brian Centrone (Publisher) and Jordan M. Scoggins (Creative Director) in 2012, New Lit Salon Press is a stylish, independent 21st-century press based on the principle that Words and Art can and should coexist. We believe literary art need not be stuffy and aim to bring an approachable vibe to excellent writing, always served with a dash of humor and a wink and a nod. We publish emerging and established writers and artists who share this vision. We believe in what you do.

The world of publishing has changed. NLSP not only recognises that but embraces it. We publish carefully crafted books because we believe great art and writing deserves to be presented beautifully. All of our titles are available in affordable paperback editions and electronic form.

With over 30 collective years of experience in creative, publishing, technology, and academic fields, we bring a unique skill set to the table. Our comprehensive approach is designed to nurture new and unheard talent in ways most publishers do not. Like many small presses, NLSP is a labor of love. Any profits we make support the press so we can continue to offer new opportunities to showcase your work. We love what we do (and hope you do too).

We are writers. We are artists. We are NLSP and we create books.

I’m impressed with the goals of New Lit Salon Press who support artists and writers. Their goal is to nurture new and unknown talent in ways most Indie publishers do not. Everyone has a story, and they support new writers.

I like the way NLSP handles their writers. They approach every step of the publishing process with professionalism, which is a breath of fresh air. They can clean a manuscript without taking the writer’s style and voice out of it, their marketing approach is very writer-centric, and they do everything they can for their authors. I think many publishers should use NLSP as a model for how to treat authors.

“New Lit Salon Press is a joy to work with. They care about writing and authors, and this care shows in their lovely books and in their graceful manner with authors. As an author, one feels like a partner with Brian and Jordan, not a client. While strong writing is of utmost importance for NLSP’s books, the publications’ cover and interior art is beautiful and works of art by themselves. NLSP is a young publisher, but one that will be doing excellent work for a long time.”
