The dream of a small press began when I had the good fortune to meet Cape Cod author and publisher Jim Coogan at a booksigning event in Buzzards Bay. I asked a lot of questions about how to make a press work. His best advice was to publish one good book. That’s where you begin.
From 2008-2016, Resolute Bear Press published Off the Coast, a journal of poetry and art.
In 2017, RBP launched our first book, 3 Nations Anthology: Native, Canadian & New England Writers and The Martin Bormann Dog Care Book.
In 2019, we published Bear, Coyote, Raven by Jason Grundstrum-Whitney and in spring 2020 we will release Stories Our Grandmothers Told Us, a bilingual book of Passamaquoddy stories edited by Wayne Newell and Robert Leavitt.
We took Jim Coogan’s advice and started with one good book and we have made it our goal to publish one good book at a time.
