What keeps you up at night
Insomniac Press was founded as a poetry chapbook press in 1992 by Mike O'Connor. Over three decades, Mike evolved Insomniac into a medium-size independent press known for eye-catching and boundary-pushing poetry, fiction, and non-fiction titles. Specializing in unique themes, including Black studies and queer fiction, Insomniac has sold books in 40 countries around the world.
In 2020, under the guidance of a new editorial board, the press is evolving again: the new mandate of Insomniac Press is to amplify voices that resist oppression.
