Our Mission

Brooklyn Arts Press (BAP) and BAP Music are devoted to publishing new works by emerging artists. We believe we serve our community best by publishing great works of varying aesthetics side by side, subverting the notion that writers and artists exist in vacuums, apart from the culture in which they reside and outside the realm and understanding of other camps and aesthetics. We believe experimentation and innovation, arriving by way of given forms or new ones, make our culture greater through diversity of perspective, opinion, expression, and spirit.

Our staff is composed of literary loyalists whose editorial resolve, time, effort, and expertise allows us to publish the best of the manuscripts we receive.
