Gnashing Teeth Publishing was conceived in the middle of the night and promptly overtook every waking hour since. often referred to as simply GTP, we love the community of Gnashers who have embraced our vision. we seek to meet the growing need of poets to be anthologized, celebrated, listened to, and shared with the world. we do not shy away from subjects or language, but embrace honesty, high caliber writing, non-traditional works, and the community of authors and poets. beyond traditional print books, we have online features and fun projects. we are always looking at opportunities for poets, writers, and artists to engage with us and our growing community.
we love getting to know you. get to know us.
