Our History

Our founder believes that our most valuable learning comes from our peers. Camelback Press was formed in 2006 to give voice to youth who can inspire the next generation and enlighten their elders. A window into the character of a peer carries a reflection as well.

Our name is taken from Camelback Mountain, the famous mountain located in our home city of Phoenix, Arizona. The image of a camel is fitting for a publisher of anthologies: it is said that “a camel is a horse designed by committee.”
