Our Imprints

We seek to publish distinct literary journals and books that

  1. engage the world and create beauty
  2. contribute to the variety and diversity of cultural expression
  3. make a humane impact on society


Founded by Publishing Laboratory director Emily Smith, literary imprint
Lookout Books
pledges to seek out works by emerging and historically underrepresented voices, as well as overlooked gems by established writers. In a publishing landscape increasingly indifferent to literary innovation, Lookout offers a haven for books that matter.

The imprint officially launched in January 2011 with Edith Pearlman’s Binocular Vision: New and Selected Stories, which was extolled on the cover of the New York Times Book Review. Binocular Vision went on to be nominated for the National Book Award, the Story Prize, and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize; in addition to those honors, Pearlman’s collection won the National Book Critics Circle Award, the PEN/Malamud Award, and the Edward Lewis Wallant Award. Now in its seventh U.S. printing, it has so far been translated into Italian, Swedish, Chinese, and Japanese, and received enthusiastic reviews from, in addition to the NYRBR, the LA Times, the Boston Globe, the Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune, Christian Science
Monitor
, Booklist, Publishers Weekly, and the Rumpus.
