The Collagist is a monthly journal to be published the 15th of each month beginning August 2009. Each issue will contain short fiction, poetry, essays, book reviews, and an excerpt from a forthcoming novel.

Dzanc Books was created in 2006 by Steven Gillis and Dan Wickett to advance great writing and to champion those writers who do not fit neatly into the marketing niches of for-profit presses. As a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization, Dzanc Books not only publishes literary fiction, but works in partnership with literary journals to advance their readership at every level. Dzanc is also fully committed to developing educational programs in schools and organizes workshops and Writer-In-Residence programs in Michigan and elsewhere to meet that goal. Dzanc offers unique one-on-one mentorship programs with established authors in their Creative Writing Sessions. Dzanc also annually sponsors the Dzanc Prize.
