Les Figues Press is a nonprofit literary organization based in Los Angeles. In November 2017, the press joined the Los Angeles Review of Books as an imprint of LARB Books. Our mission is to create aesthetic conversations between readers, writers, and artists in Los Angeles and around the globe.
Les Figues’ titles include award-winning works of poetry, prose, visual arts, conceptual writing, and translation. We circulate writing that imagines new artistic practices, establishes new theories of literature, and questions the avant-garde alongside the status quo. We also curate and host literary events, including readings, conversations, performances, and art salons.
Les Figues Press embraces a feminist editorial vision and advances global feminism(s). We publish writing that provokes conversations about gender, race, class, and sexuality in relation to literary and artistic production.
