"Though Unnamed Press works with a lot of international authors, the duo notes that what's most important is that the writers are contemporary. 'We want writers who are exciting and alive that belong to this generation, or belong to the now, to contemporary life,' said Heiser. It's a strategy, Smith noted, that has resulted in Unnamed publishing debut authors. Heiser added that to balance the debuts, they make sure also to acquire works by established writers. 'As a business, we also need writers with a larger audience.'"
