Joggling Board Press is a Charleston-based independent publishing company dedicated to the production of fiction and non-fiction books of quality that amplify the history, culture and character of the American southeast. In the ten years that it has been in operation, the press has garnered an inordinately large number of regional and national awards.
The press was founded in 2003 by award-winning author and editor Susan Kammeraad-Campbell, who became sole owner of the press in 2007. JBP quickly distinguished itself as a serious press with an eye for quality. Museum-grade coffee table books produced and published by JBP, featuring the work of talented photographers, artists and writers, can be found on the tables of some of the South’s grand Antebellum homes, beach houses and historic sites. JBP authors have added to the literary fabric of the South, filled important gaps in historiography, and given voice to writers with stories worth knowing.
The decidedly unconventional press has forged its own path, melding the talents of poets, historians, journalists, photographers, painters, musicians, chefs and designers. Each title is painstakingly crafted and polished to ensure the greatest quality possible for readers. The press’ rigorous editorial standards perfectly intersect with persons of talent, making Joggling Board Press the ideal environment for publishing books that matter.
Joggling Board Press titles have received praise from such authors as Pat Conroy, Nathalie Dupree, the Lee Brothers, Franz Wisner and Anne Rivers Siddons, and they have been featured on CBS, NPR, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, Publishers Weekly, Booklist, Kirkus Reviews, The State, The Post and Courier, The Charlotte Observer, and many others.
Along the way, Joggling Board Press has partnered with the venerable Evening Post Publishing Company (EPPC), MeadWestvaco, the Pawleys Island Civic Association, Blue Water Management, the Beaufort County Open Land Trust, the S.C. Bar Association and others to create enduring titles such as “Gullah Cuisine: By Land and By Sea,” “Dirty Secrets, Dirty War,” “Boathouse Cookbook,” and “Edisto River: North America’s Black Water Crown Jewel.”
