We are excited to announce that beginning on January 1, 2021 Penguin Random House will begin distributing Catapult/Counterpoint Press/Soft Skull Press. COUNTERPOINT LLC was created in 2007 through the acquisition of three notable independent presses: Counterpoint, Shoemaker & Hoard, and Soft Skull Press. In January 2008, the company began publishing under two imprints, Counterpoint and Soft Skull Press. In 2016, Counterpoint merged with Catapult, an independent press and publisher of an award-winning online magazine. Author-driven, they devote all energy to the fresh, cutting-edge, and literary voices of our authors. The genres covered are vast—fiction and nonfiction, poetry, graphic novels, and anthologies, all of which collectively focus on current affairs and politics, counterculture, music, history, memoir, literary biography, religion, and philosophy.
- Catapult & Counterpoint Press publishes award-winning fiction and nonfiction of the highest literary caliber. Since their launch in Fall 2015, Catapult’s books and authors have won numerous major literary awards, and are frequently named to the American Booksellers Association Indie Next List, and have been featured as Kirkus Reviews Best Books of the Year, Belletrist Book Club picks, and as The New York Times Editors’ Choice selections.
- Soft Skull Press is an independent publisher of books that engage art, culture, and current events in new and radical ways. We publish every genre.
