Advice for writers

How does Atmosphere Press work?


Atmosphere Press is a hybrid publisher and author services company, which means that the author makes an upfront investment in utilizing our team’s skills, yet the author maintains rights to their material and any future proceeds deriving from their work, while also holding final autonomy over their content. This partnership model allows us to build and keep a staff of experts, and gives you transparency in terms of what you’re receiving. Whereas some traditional publishers front the initial costs of publication and design, they often end up taking advantage of authors on the back end through onerous royalties contracts and marked-up copies sold to the authors themselves; we’ve seen this happen to great writers over and over again. They also may take the rights to authors’ work, and can seriously limit authors’ control of the destiny of their own words. Instead of this publisher-friendly model, we use an author-centric approach in which you as the author keep your hand on the steering wheel.
