Flying Ketchup Press ® was founded in 2018 to champion new and diverse voices in short fiction and poetry. Our dream, to publish, produce and share worlds of wonder and delight.


Our Imprints: Salt and Fig Books for strangely satisfying poetry, Coyote Point Press for excellent short fiction, Light Shine Books for contemporary meditations and faith-inspired, The Story Tree for young readers. 

Ketchupedia is our outreach programming to writers including Podcasts, Radio, Poets-in-Residence, Classes, Open-Mic Events, and More.


That's us.  We're committed to bringing writers and illustrators together with their curious, awaiting audiences.  Ever wonder why it’s hard to find a good story, something satiable, satisfying, and just plain good? Sometimes, don’t you wish you could be transported to another world, just for a few moments? Do you wish you could read something just right; new emotional landscapes in the first few pages? Are you a writer who wants to widen your audience? Here, all our worlds collide. Readers, meet new authors. Authors, meet your readers.
