Distribution Submissions 

We are always seeking exciting new material to distribute. Our goal is to make available radical books and other materials that are published by independent presses with which you can make a positive change in the world. All decision making, including which titles we distribute, is made collectively.

Distribution channels we service include: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Baker & Taylor, Ingram, Midwest Library Service, college bookstores for text orders, and any and all independent bookstores, record stores, specialty retail customers, and individuals worldwide.

If you would like to be distributed by AK Press please send a sample of your publication(s) to:

AK Press
Attn: Distribution
370 Ryan Ave #100
Chico, CA 95973


Samples will not be returned.

We also happily accept PDF samples. Email them to info@akpress.org

When submitting materials please note the following:

  • Include suggested list price in US dollars.

  • Include biographical information on your authors and other relevant data.

  • Please let us know about any distributors or stores who already carry your titles.

  • Please tell us if it has an ISBN.

  • And of course, your contact information: Your name, the publisher name, email, and phone number.


Although we would like to be able to respond to everyone, our limited time and resources don’t allow for this. We try our best to review submissions soon after they are received and will contact you for further information only if we are interested. Please allow several weeks for a response.

If you are an author and would like to discuss publishing options with AK Press, or if you are a publisher or foreign rights agent and would like to discuss a possible new edition of an existing work as an AK Press publishing project, please visit our Publishing Submissions page!
