Women-owned indie publishing company dedicated to advancing the professional interests of career-focused writers in and around the 518 area code region through networking, advocacy, and publication.

Pub518, or 518 Publishing Company LLC as we are officially recognized, started in 2016 with four women who gathered frequently to write, edit, plot, and kill (maim, or morph) characters; as well as to talk about writing, editing, plotting, and the most dramatic ways to kill off characters.  

Our mission is to give local writers a leg up in the publishing world by providing them with a venue for short works of (mostly) fiction. We have six published anthologies, Beneath the Misty Surface, Influence of the MoonDark and BitterExploits in The Adirondacks, A Guide to Useless Sidekicks, and Cold and Crisp 

These anthologies have provided a venue for our authors to be recognized with nominations and awards including; The 2020 Dwarf Stars Anthology and Award, Pushcart Prize Nominations, Rhysling Nomination, and Critter Awards for Best Anthology, Best Editors, Best Publishers, and more!

Recently, we began publishing novels. The first of these, Cookies to Crumbles by Shannon Yseult, is now available. We can not wait to see what this new venture brings to the authors and readers of the 518!
