About Woodland Press

"As governor, I am extremely pleased to see Woodland Press as a viable avenue for West Virginia authors to write about Appalachian history and subjects." -- WV Gov. Joe Manchin, III, 2008

Although less than a decade old, Woodland Press, LLC, is already considered one of the pioneers in publishing Appalachian-based, Appalachian-authored literary works and publications. The company is an independent publishing company, located in the cradle of the Appalachian Mountain range, that publishes award-winning books. The company has differentiated itself from others in the industry by offering the highest degree of literary and graphic quality, aggressive marketing strategies, and a priority on service excellence. The company publishes products that promote the Appalachian culture and region in a positive light—publishing exceptional stories —both fiction and nonfiction—with mountain themes or backdrops. Woodland Press books are without explicit language or content.

Woodland Press focuses on projects that highlight extraordinary storytellers and historians.

Our highest emphasis is on integrity in business.

Many of our authors are from the Appalachian states, and many are nationally-known and respected storytellers who share in our love for Appalachian history and culture.
