"NYSAI Press publishes Staten Island based literary journals, chapbooks, zines, and a biannual literary magazine featuring artists and writers with distinct voices from all over the world.
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. Learn more at nysai.org.
