Epistula Publishing was created in 2018 as a way to assist talented new authors in publishing their debut novels. Epistula seeks writers who may not have the means to publish, who may be hard on their luck or busy moms and dads with little spare funds and time, as well as those living with disabilities, mental health disorders, or dealing with some past trauma, through writing competitions held yearly. Entrants provide two chapters of the first book they would write if they could, and an essay on why they want to publish and the challenges they face in making it a reality.
