Gene Hayworth and Keith Waters founded Owl Canyon Press in 2011, as a forum for new voices in fiction and literature in translation. Carolyn Moeller joined the press in 2016 as our Vice-president of Sales and Marketing. In the past five years our title list has expanded to include such diverse works as the personal memoir Cloudbreak, California, the music collection The Coleman Dowell Songbook, and the legal reference work, The User's Guide to Colorado Marijuana Law. The press is located in Boulder, Colorado, at the foot of the Rocky Mountains.


Our goal is to discover new and upcoming authors whose works stimulate the imagination. We have received grants from the Goethe-Institut as well as the Austrian Ministry of Education and Culture.
