It’s all about creativity, diversity, and empowerment at La Muse Press, LLC. The owner, Mary B. Banks, takes her role as a book publisher seriously. In order to better guarantee the success of La Muse Press, she has decided to go back to school to earn a second master’s degree. She is attending George Washington University to pursue a Master of Professional Studies in Publishing. Not only is Ms. Banks a publisher, but she is a writer herself. In 2011, she earned a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing and Publishing Arts from the University of Baltimore. She is the author of Street Magic: Stories and Tales, a debut short story collection (click here). 

Ms. Banks is committed to publishing the works of people of color and women. She believes that literature creates community. La Muse Press is excited about its future. What first started as a dream for Ms. Banks has now manifested itself into reality.

We can change the world through literature, one reader at a time. Words have the ability to breakdown walls that we create. Let’s tear down these walls and unite. Peace, love, and blessings.
