Littoral Books is a small press based in Portland, Maine.
It was founded in 1975 by members of the Portland Women’s Group for the express purpose of publishing the work of women writers. Littoral Books was one of the founding presses of the Maine Writers and Publishers Alliance, and several of its members served on MWPA’s first board of directors.
The press went into hibernation in 1976, but forty-three years later, in 2018, it renewed publication. Littoral Books is now committed to publishing quality books in a variety of genres by writers of all genders from Maine and New England.
