Synergetic Press is an independent publisher offering paradigm-shifting books for over fifty years. Through our distributor Publisher’s Group West, part of Ingram Publisher Services, the largest trade book distribution network in the world, we offer unparalleled reach for our authors’ works.
We recognize that systems of oppression have long perpetuated social and environmental inequity and aim to create fertile ground for some of the most important and time-sensitive discussions of our age: climate action, promoting equity, liberating our consciousness, and healing ourselves and the land.
In line with our mission, we especially welcome works that have been historically overlooked in mainstream discourses and submissions from authors who belong to underrepresented communities.
Our topics of focus include:
Ecology & Sustainability
Social Justice & Cultural Studies
Psychedelics & Consciousness
