Orison Books is a 501(c)(3) non-profit literary press with a unique focus on the life of the spirit, from a broad and inclusive range of perspectives. We cannot succeed without those who support our mission of publishing exceptional literature that engages the life of the spirit, and of fostering cultural conversation around spirituality and literature. We are immensely grateful to the donors listed at the bottom of this page, who have made the initial contributions that allowed Orison Books to get off the ground. We are also very much in need of ongoing donations in order to bring important spiritually engaged poetry, fiction, and non-fiction into the world. 

Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution today. Your donations will allow us to publish superb work by writers who are devoted to probing the mystery underlying the fabric of our daily lives. 

Donations may be designated toward a particular title or public event. Please contact the editor here if you’d like to specify a particular use for your donation.

Donors will be listed for a year on this page to acknowledge their contribution. If you would prefer to remain anonymous, please indicate this when you make your contribution.
