OUR STORY

Conocimientos Press relies on a feminist and empowering review process, with the support of advisors with academic expertise in the author’s field of study who review and affirm readiness for publication. A mentoring design guides each author in their publications.

CALLING WRITERS AND AUTHORS

We welcome writers wishing to share their knowledge with colleagues who support community knowledge. Its aims are to provide access and bridge scholarly ideas not available in books, which are often critiqued as not academic or intellectual enough. Conocimientos Press relies on a feminist and empowering review process, whereby a collective of advisors with academic expertise in the author’s field of study review and affirm readiness for publication. A mentoring design guides each author in the publication of their work. 

With emphasis on the interstices of race, ethnicity, class, or gender, this press calls for Chicana and Latina writers who narrate everyday life within culturally affirming accounts focusing on self- and other-knowledge. Conocimientos Press publishes accounts that voice the heart of a people, as they document narratives of struggle and resistance. El sol—sun, la luna—moon, el corazón—heart, and el nopal—cactus serve as icons of knowing in interaction with others, whereby interstices of power and quotidian sabidurías inspire empowerment and growth.
