NYSAI Press publishes Staten Island based literary journals featuring artists and writers with distinct voices in a borough forgotten.
We are city, we are suburbia; we are deformed, we are beautiful; we are America, and we are forever cut from the mainland. We are NYSAI Press and pledge to present it all, break it down, fuck it up, and move it forward because we can and we know you can too.

About Weasel Press
Weasel Press is a new independent publisher still figuring things out in the literary world. We’re dedicated in seeking quality writers and helping them get a voice in an already loud world. We’re a little rusty at the moment since things are still under construction, but we hope to build a great reputation!
Our first publication was Vagabonds: Anthology of the Mad Ones, a literary magazine that is still printing and still growing. From there we’ve grown into a few other titles. This past year we’ve released two issues of Vagabonds, partnered with Mind Steady Productions to bring an electric issue of Open Mind, and dove into the darker world with The Haunted Traveler. We’ve got a lot of plans for the near future, so stick around and watch us grow into something awesome!
“Kelp” and “Bluebells” were accepted into this cool Anthology:
Degenerates: Voices for Peace
Weasel Press is now calling for submissions for a poetry and arts anthology called Degenerates: Voices for Peace. The purpose of the project is to awaken, enlighten and maybe even provide a bit of shelter to those who need it. Poetry has some immense power in the world, either through healing its readers or inspiring them to become involved. We’re looking for Poetry, Photography, Artwork, Prose Poetry, etc with passion. We need to be able to feel and experience your work. There is a wealth of social justice and other topics that we are looking at to put this anthology together. Things such as: Bullying, sexuality, Homelessness, Free Speech, Animal Rights, Rape Culture, and much more. Artwork and written work does not have to be strictly political but must address something that would be a voice for peace
