Islandport is a dynamic, award-winning publisher dedicated to stories rooted in the essence and sensibilities of New England. We strive to capture and explore the grit, heart, beauty, and infectious spirit of the region by telling tales, real and imagined, that can be appreciated in many forms by readers, dreamers, and adventurers everywhere.


Islandport Press books are available on wholesale terms to retail stores either directly through Islandport Press or through one of our distribution partners. Please contact us directly (207-846-3344) if you have any questions.

Islandport Press maintains and operates its own warehouse in Yarmouth, Maine. UPS is the primary carrier for shipping to stores directly, but Islandport may also ship via FedEx, United States Postal Service, or a local service when appropriate. Resellers are also welcome to pick up orders at the warehouse rather than have them shipped.
