NYSAI Press publishes Staten Island based literary journals  and books featuring artists and writers with distinct voices from all over the world.

We are city, we are suburbia; we are deformed, we are beautiful; we are America, and we are forever cut from the mainland. We are NYSAI Press and pledge to present it all, break it down, fuck it up, and move it forward.
