The joggling board is an apt metaphor for the spirit of Joggling Board Press – a way of bringing diverse people together in comity. Joggling boards are long, capable of seating many at one time. By joggling simultaneously, eventually everyone winds up side by side. So it is for the talented people who make up Joggling Board Press.
Joggling Board Press is a full-service independent publishing company in Summerville, South Carolina. Here, the making of a book is a collaborative process, melding the minds and talents of writers, editors, artists and designers alike. We find the stories that need to be told and undertake the best way to tell them.
All of our titles have earned awards, several of them four or more national awards. We don’t produce many books per year but the books we do we do well. For us it’s as much about the journey as it is about the book itself.
As a regional press, we primarily produce non-fiction titles that capture the history, culture and/or spirit of South Carolina. Depending on the nature of the project, we may undertake a traditional publishing arrangement, a partnership approach, or we may require external funding.
We are a teaching press. We offer authors fee-based editorial mentorships, in-depth editorial reviews, as well as line edit and proofreading services.
We also offer unpaid internships and apprenticeships, which can be undertaken for school credit, job experience or immersion in a creative and supportive environment.
