Hide Profile

Palaemon Press Limited was a small, literary publishing house, established in 1977, by Stuart T. Wright, in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Its name derives from Greek mythology. Palaemon was the name of several characters from ancient Greek mythology and history, including a son of Hercules and one of the Argonauts who sought the mythic golden fleece. The word Palaemon has multiple scientific meanings: signifying both a family of insects and a genus of shrimp. Palaemon Press specialized in small, high quality, works by Southern poets and writers. By 1984, Palaemon Press had produced 316 titles, mainly poetry, but also several letters, brochures, broadsides, chapbooks, pamphlets, checks, newsletters, photography, and sheet music. Palaemon Press ceased operation in 1985.
