Who We Are

Catapult is an innovative publishing venture created by the founders of Electric Literature and Black Balloon Publishing. The company includes a book publishing program of the highest literary caliber, a robust series of writing classes, a daily website of narrative nonfiction and fiction, and a community platform where emerging writers can share their work. 

Catapult nurtures and supports writers. We strive to be a successful model for the future of independent publishing.
