Ugly Duckling Presse is a nonprofit art and publishing organisation, based in Brooklyn, New York. UDP's mission is to produce artisanal and trade editions of new poetry, translation, experimental nonfiction, performance texts, and books by artists.
With a volunteer editorial collective of artists and writers at its heart, UDP grew out of a 1990s zine into a small press that has published more than 200 titles to date, with an editorial office and letterpress workshop in the Old American Can Factory in Gowanus, NY. UDP favours emerging, international, and 'forgotten' writers, and its books, chapbooks, artist’s books, broadsides, and periodicals often contain handmade elements, calling attention to the labour and history of bookmaking.
