Welcome to the Mason J. Press and Review

We are an independently owned, and operated publishing press in Oregon City, Oregon. We edit and publish works of fiction, and poetry in our literary review and for stand alone electronic publication. 

Here, we encourage all things creative. Write it out. Sing it out. Snap it out. No matter how you do it, do it. We know that we're our own worst critics and that the white blank page can be a mighty foe to slay. We know that it's hard to start, hard to continue, and hard to finish but we believe that the written work is important.

Visit our news blog to see what's happening in our press. To read our stand alone short publications, visit the Mason J. Review. Our artist's page features all of our published authors. If you have any questions that haven't been answered while reading through our website, reach out to us on our contact page. 


First Print: A Mason J Press Anthology of Science Fiction


We’re excited to announce our first ever print run. This will be an Anthology of Science Fiction and will run a small copy in a physical print form to be distributed locally and on our website. Authors chosen to be published within the anthology will be given both an electronic copy and physical copy of the anthology once printed and will be featured in our Review.

Here’s what else you need to know:

What: Anything within the Science Fiction genre
Deadline to Submit: May 31st, 2019 11:59pm PST
Length: Maximum of 10 Poems (approximately 20 pages in length)
Maximum of 30,000 words for Short Fiction
How: Send entries to submissions@masonjpress.com noting that it is to be considered for the SF Anthology

We truly are excited to publish this anthology and can’t wait to read what you have to offer. We’re looking to publish new and previously unpublished voices as well as those not traditionally represented within the genre. Give it a shot! Submit your work!

One last note: we are a small press and thrive on word of mouth. Tell all your friends, and make them tell all their friends! Share it on social media and tag us (@masonjpress).

Go all the way with it. Do not back off. For once, go all the goddamn way with what matters.
— Ernest Hemingway
