Shanty Publishing’s mission is to publish and promote books about the sea, and its history, myths, and riveting stories. We aim to publish fiction and non-fiction that incorporates the many tales and symbolisms of the vast waterways of the earth.

Perilous ocean journeys, modern-day marine biology, threats to our waterways, humankind’s lifelong interaction with the sea, mermaids and other deep sea mysteries… you will find them at Shanty Publishing.

Named for the melancholy sea shanties of yore (with a nod to the little fishing shacks many seaside peoples called home), Shanty Publishing is located by the Atlantic, on the southern coast of Long Island, New York.

We are currently not accepting submissions. Please check back in winter 2014, when we open submissions again.
