From the publisher

Welcome to the Mason J. Press and Review

We are an independently owned, operated, and locally originated publishing house in Vancouver, Washington which is just across the river from Portland, Oregon. We publish works in fiction, creative non-fiction, and poetry in our literary review and for distribution.

Here, we encourage all things creative. Write it out. Sing it out. Snap it out. No matter how you do it, do it. We know that we’re our own worst critics and that the white blank page can be a mighty foe to slay. We know that it’s hard to start, hard to continue, but we believe that the written work is important.

“Go all the way with it. Do not back off. For once, go all the goddamn way with what matters. ”
— Ernest Hemingway

We accept works of fiction, creative non-fiction, and poetry; but what we really look forward to reading is Science Fiction. An often underrated genre, we believe that the consideration of science fiction and the imagination it inspires could progress societal structures, scientific discovery, and save our planet.

“Science fiction is the most important literature in the history of the world, because it’s the history of ideas, the history of our civilization birthing itself. …Science fiction is central to everything we’ve ever done, and people who make fun of science fiction writers don’t know what they’re talking about.”
— Ray Bradbury

“There’s no real objection to escapism, in the right places… We all want to escape occasionally. But science fiction is often very far from escapism, in fact you might say that science fiction is escape into reality… It’s a fiction which does concern itself with real issues: the origin of man; our future. In fact I can’t think of any form of literature which is more concerned with real issues, reality.”
— Arthur C. Clarke

  1. I have written a fictional novel but I’m still doubting about the grammar and some sentence structure, I’m not really good in making some flowering words in English… Will the publishing help me review my novel if I publish it?

  2. Hi
    I was recommended by an American publisher who lives and works in England to submit my work both in America or/and in Paris.
    I am a french writer (novels, flash fiction in French) and poetry (in English). According to the publisher mentioneed she thinks I would fare better in American or France although I would like to publish ultimately inn England where I live.
    In the past I have published some early poetry followed by 3 novels and a collection of flash fiction in French. My last novel has not been accepted. Since then I have taken the challenge in writing English poetry after attending 2 years at London Poetry School (now in my third year).
    Can you help me get published which would boost my inspiration.
    With best wishes
    Marie

  3. This is the first draft of an autobiographical narrative. This piece elaborates upon a psychotic episode that I personally encountered shortly before my entrance into adulthood. Please consider for publication. Enjoy.
