ABOUT

Red Berry Editions was founded in 2008 by Marie C. Dern and Jane M. Downs. Red Berry Editions is dedicated to collaborating with writers and visual artists who want to have distinguished books to show their work to best advantage.  We publish trade books, art catalogues, chapbooks and deluxe books in large or small editions.  We produce books from an idea to a beautiful, bound volume, from design to editing, typesetting, printing and binding.  No job too small, and no job too large.

Jane Downs left the University of California Press in 2008 to cofound Red Berry Editions with Marie Dern.  She is a freelance editor and writer whose work has won prizes and appears in numerous anthologies and literary journals including the Asheville Poetry Review, North American Review, Ninth Letter and Field Magazine. Her chapbook, April Elegy, received Special Merit recognition from the 2011 Jessie Bryce Niles Chapbook Contest sponsored by the Comstock Review and was published by Kattywompus Press in 2012. She was anthologized in The Book of Now, Poetry for the Rising Tide, edited by Leah Shelleda and the featured poet in the 2012 Fall edition of Psychological Perspectives. Her novella, The Sleeping Wall, won the Fiction Fix 2013 Novella Contest. It was published in November, 2013.
