Androscoggin Press

Small Press—Big Talent


Passionate about books and writing, founder Cynthia Fraser Graves established Androscoggin Press to highlight the talented writers of Maine and New England, offering a platform for emerging and established voices to share their stories with the world.

Believing in the power of regional writing to capture the beauty, integrity, and uniqueness of the New England way of life, we are dedicated to supporting authors and artists whose work reflects these values. Join us in celebrating the rich literary heritage of our region.

Curious about our name? Androscoggin is the Anglicization of a term used by the Eastern Abenaki people for the beautiful and life-giving river that runs from New Hampshire through western Maine.
