Coffee House Press’s policy is to make our books and literary programs accessible to all, regardless of race, color, creed, religion, national origin, gender, age, sexual orientation, or disability. We are an equal opportunity employer, and do not discriminate on the basis of any of these criteria.

Coffee House Press books are available for audio recordings for readers with visual impairments, and we provide digital versions of our books upon request for readers who use Braille or other electronic readers.

Coffee House Press books are available for no cost through public libraries, and through partnerships with programs like Little Free Libraries, and government and private organizations like Hennepin County Correctional Facilities, among others.

While we do not control the spaces where our readings occur, we are committed to making our programming fully accessible. We seek out accessible spaces and have provisions for other accommodations, including sign language interpretation. To check on accessibility or make a specific request, please contact Coffee House Press via email at or call 612-338-0125 a minimum of two weeks prior to the event. We will work with the presenter and do our best to provide the appropriate accommodations.

If you have any questions about Coffee House Press’s accessibility policies, or if you wish to request to purchase an alternative format of one of our books, please contact our assistant editor, Lizzie Davis, at

In September of 2015, CHP announced the availability of eighty titles formatted for screen readers used by the blind and visually impaired. With a focus on poetry and prose with unconventional formatting, this initiative significantly diversifies the work available to that community. To see these titles go here.
