Our Mission

The mission of Coffee House Press is to publish exciting, vital, and enduring authors of our time; to delight and inspire readers; to contribute to the cultural life of our community; and to enrich our literary heritage. By building on the best traditions of publishing and the book arts, we produce books that celebrate imagination, innovation in the craft of writing, and the many authentic voices of the American experience.

Help Support Good Books


Find out about meaningful ways to make a difference through the power of the arts when you join Coffee House Press as a volunteer!

Discussing our current books with readers, creating an attractive display of our merchandise, serving refreshments, and expanding our list of supporters are all ways you can contribute as an event volunteer. Coffee House Press has a busy schedule of readings, book fairs, and cultivation events. Our small but mighty staff could be fortified by your time and talents!

The annual benefit for Coffee House Press takes place each Spring. It requires coordination and preparation! We need event planning volunteers to help us coordinate an attractive literary program, plan logistics, obtain items for our silent auction, secure sponsorships, and make this event a success. This is a great opportunity to contribute to Coffee House Press – and have a lot of fun doing so!

Do you own a service company? Did you know that Coffee House Press could benefit from your professional services? In-kind contributions allow us to focus our resources on expanding our commitment to authors and readers. Please consider expanding your portfolio and increasing your exposure while making a difference in our community! Contact us about donating your time and talents to our mission.

Coffee House Press also benefits from our INTERN PROGRAM and the services of VOLUNTEER READERS. To learn more about these programs, visit our internship  page or email anitra@coffeehousepress.org for more information.
