Thank you for visiting Twelve Winters Press, a literary publisher.


The Press is excited to announce that we’ll be bringing out Beth Gilstrap‘s debut story collection, I Am Barbarella, in 2015. The book is rife with quirky, granite-edged characters who win our sympathy in spite of–or perhaps because of–their very human failings. Beth has been awarded residencies at the Vermont Studio Center and the Cabin at Shotpouch Creek through Oregon State University’s Spring Creek Project. Stories in the collection have appeared in Quiddity, Ambit, the minnesota review, Superstition Review, and elsewhere. She lives with her husband and their many rescue pets in Charlotte, North Carolina.


Released August 2014 . . .
