You've heard it before: If we don't tell our stories, they'll be told without us.


Anchor & Oak Publishing is an innovative independent publishing house based in New York City focused on diverse authors, illustrators, and storytellers. 

Our focus is to publish a diverse selection of passionate and influential voices telling stories they couldn't find in the world. We bring books to life that explore cultural inclusion and start conversations with our readers. In a nutshell: we publish the stories you wish you had as a child, parent, and adult. 

We look for voices who are looking to tell stories of culture, identity, life, and all things relevant to our lives. 

If you are an author or illustrator that is interested in working with us, please contact us via the Submission form in the footer.

It's time for us to tell our own stories.
