Sure, the Garbage Factory can be thought of as a publishing company. Am I taking submissions? Maybe. I’m honestly not actively seeking anything, but visit the contact form, drop me a line, and make a pitch. I’m always happy to be convinced. The Garbage Factory is also a way for writers and creators to find a little guidance toward a final, publishable project.
It’s also just an alias for me, John Pence. I started my career in book publishing in the ’90s and went freelance around the turn of the century. I spent about a decade teaching the nuts and bolts of the language, and I’ve run a couple magazines as well. I’ve been around the block a few times, editing a list of books that’s got to be somewhere in the low hundreds. A fellow loses count after a while. Check out my Linkedin profile for details if you are interested in specifics.
If I can be of service on your project, let me know. If you’re looking for a publisher, let me know that, too.
