The Raise-an-Artist Project Press!


We here at the Raise-an-Artist Project Press are thrilled to present the following publications! Publishing a printed book is a lifelong goal we are delighted to help our Artists manifest. These featured Artists have a passion for their work. Whatever the media - creative writing, illustration, photography - they have experienced the pride of accomplishment and the joy of holding their very own book in their hands. Some have even gone on to sell copies of their books at our Art Shows! 


If you are interested in obtaining a copy of any of these works please contact Jenny. If you too would like to join our Artists and publish your own book, click here to check out our Bookmaking Workshops.
