Red Hen Press is committed to publishing works of literary excellence, supporting diversity, and promoting literacy in local schools. Originally established as a publisher of poetry, about half of the 20 titles Red Hen releases annually now are literary novels and memoirs. In addition to their active reading series, the nonprofit has a community outreach project that sends published poets and authors to elementary, middle, and high schools in Southern California to teach creative writing. Red Hen then publishes participating students' work in the Writing in the Schools Anthology. Red Hen’s biannual Los Angeles Review has become one of the most widely read literary journals on the West Coast.
