ABOUT

 

THE PRESS


Co—Conspirator Press is a publishing platform for artists, writers, designers, printers, social justice workers, and editors from historically underrepresented communities who use their voice to address intersectional feminist issues and challenge cis-hetero-patriarchy, white-supremacy, and exclusionary, colonial, capitalist, and ableist systems.

We value utilizing thoughtful means of production, with materials usually produced on the riso printer, which allows products to be more cost effective, with less impact on the environment, and ultimately more accessible.

We are continuously working towards more equitable publishing models, allowing us the opportunity to abundantly support the writers, designers, printers, editors, and artists that we collaborate with.


Co—Conspirator Press operates out of the
Feminist Center for Creative Work in Los Angeles.

HOW WE WORK WITH AUTHORS


Co—Conspirator Press’ relationship with the author(s) begins at the time of selection of their work for publication, either through an open call or a direct invitation. Over the course of roughly 20 weeks, Co—Conspirator Press works directly with the authors to develop and edit their work, design, print and produce their book, and promote and distribute the final product. Authors receive an upfront $250 stipend for their work, as well as a 60/40 ongoing sales split between CO—CO Press and the author(s).

Sales of Co—Conspirator Press books are split 60/40 between the press and the author. As a press, it's important to us to set prices that are accessible for folks while still supportive to the author. If you are someone who has more resources and are able to pay more for our publications, we have added two additional pricing tiers that you can select when purchasing a book. By paying a higher price, you are redistributing more resources to both the press and the authors. Thank you for your support!

RISOGRAPH


is a digital duplicator that was created in 1986 by the Riso Kagaku Corporation in Japan.

Originally intended for schools, churches, and other organizations, the risograph allows for high volume printing at an affordable price.

Similar to the silk screening process, the Risograph creates a master by burning an image onto a master sheet.

The master is then wrapped around a cylindrical drum where ink is forced through and applied onto paper.



RISO PRINTING

provides an affordable, sustainable, and creative alternative to traditional forms of print production.

We view it as our duty to consciously utilize our resources, creating and producing books through a more economically & environmentally sustainable model.

This process allows for a more accessible avenue to distribute intersectional feminist content to our interconnected network and beyond.
