Our Story

Beginning as a decentralized association of authors and publishing professionals, Bellwether first published anthologies of short stories by Ohio authors as Columbus Creative Cooperative in 2009, which would later become the Ohio Writers’ Association.

Bellwether was launched as a standalone imprint in 2019, and now functions as an independent small press.

In addition to anthologies of short stories, Bellwether publishes novels, novellas, and works of creative non-fiction.
