A locally focused and publicly owned publishing imprint.
The Ann Arbor District Library founded Fifth Avenue Press in 2017 to support the local writing community and promote the creation of original content. We publish works by authors who live in Washtenaw County. Rather than provide an advance, the library invests in the production of the finished work in exchange for permanent digital distribution of the completed work to AADL cardholders via the library's website. The Press’s editorial team reviews all submissions and determines which projects move forward to publication. The Press publishes fiction and non-fiction for children, teens or adults. All genres, audiences, formats and topics are considered.
