Wesleyan University Press has an editorial program that focuses on poetry, music, dance, science fiction studies, film-TV, and Connecticut history and culture. Publishing in its current form since 1957, the press has published an internationally renowned poetry series, collecting five Pulitzer Prizes, a Bollingen, and three National Book Awards in that one series alone. The mission of the press is to develop and maintain a sound and vigorous publishing program that serves the academic ends and intellectual life of the university and beyond. 

In 2018 Wesleyan acquired titles published by Paris Press (1995–2018). Paris Press was founded with the mission of publishing groundbreaking yet overlooked literature by women and educating the public about its books and authors. Wesleyan is proud to keep these important books in print. 

Wesleyan titles are distributed by Hopkins Fulfillment Services.

This book rules my bookshelf! This book is a breastplate against weapons of enemies of the beautiful truth of this breathtaking world!"

—CA Conrad, author of While Standing in Line for Death
