According to their website, "[Bellevue Literary Press] is the first and only nonprofit press dedicated to literary fiction and nonfiction at the intersection of the arts and sciences." Despite being a small press that publishes only a handful of titles per year, BLP garnered a Pulitzer Prize in 2010 for Tinkers by Paul Harding. The New York Times abashedly admitted that it failed to review the novel when it was first published, noting that Tinkers was the first novel from a small press to win a Pulitzer since A Confederacy of Dunces in 1981.
BLP gained more attention in 2011 when The Sojourn by Andrew Krivak became a finalist for the National Book Award for Fiction. BLP has published books written by the likes of Eduardo Halfon, Jonathan D. Moreno, Jerome Charyn, and Melissa Pritchard, among others.
