We have exciting news to share about a new anthology series we are co-creating with Unitarian Universalist Women and Religion:

The Sophia Anthology Series!

This Anthology Series will be part of an ongoing and ever-expanding fundraising initiative for UU Women and Religion.

Every woman who donates $100 towards membership &/or support of UUWR shall submit one entry to The Sophia Anthology Series. Matrika Press will publish a new edition of this series each time we collect 30 submissions.  Join us in this revolutionary and time honored way of sharing our stories with one another while at the same time enabling UUWR to generate operating capital towards its continued service.

Groups and Organizations may also support these publications by purchasing ads to go in the back of the anthologies.

We will have links posted mid-February to begin submission enrollments.

Happy New Year!!

Matrika Press wishes to take this time to reflect on the past year as we launched optimistically into our endeavor of independent publishing.

This is a ministry of the heart, and as such 2016 found us often in gratitude as the exact perfect people crossed paths with us, and we with them.  Authors, editors, curators and collaborators each stepped into this adventure with us, and for this we are grateful.

We thank especially our first authors, who believed in our mission as much as we do to take our UU Values and share them with the world!  As a result we published six books in our first few months of operations in the autumn-time and have a dozen more authors’ books being assembled as we write this post.

Looking towards 2017 we see a year filled with hope, filled with creative expression, filled with sharing wonderful works with the world.

Happy New Year Everyone!!

Matrika Press books are now available worldwide!
