What is New Name?

New Name Media is an upstart publisher of poetry and non-fiction. We make small, physical booklets for times of transition. Like spiritual travel guides, they both describe and facilitate unexpected encounters with the life of God in the world.

I recently read about a farmer who sows radish seeds from an airplane (!!) over fields that have already grown other crops. As the radishes grow (and they grow BIG), they make space for themselves in the ground–they are not easily deterred. Then, as they decompose, other plants can grow in the spaces the radishes opened up.

While New Name’s focus is sure to sharpen as we publish more titles, I like to think that each book is a radish sown in a crowded field, making space for you to grow good things that maybe hadn’t seemed possible before.

Feel free to contact us with the form below. We look forward to hearing from you.
