The name of our press came from a line in Harold Pinter's play, "The Homecoming."

Three Rooms Press is a fiercely independent New York-based publisher inspired by diversity, dada, punk, and passion. Founded in 1994 by editors Peter Carlaftes and Kat Georges, Three Rooms Press serves as a leading independent publisher of diverse, cut-the-edge creative, including fiction, memoir, biography, young adult, LGBTQ fiction and nonfiction, and fiction and nonfiction by underrepresented voices in the literary world.
