The Altar Collective is a small press and arts collective based in Los Angeles, CA. It was created in June of 2013 as a stepping stone for aspiring writers. Although the onslaught of technology has been beneficial for many art forms, we find that looking at poetry and literature on a computer screen diminishes the original magic of it. The Altar Collective’s main mission is to restore the quality of poetry and literature by making sure it remains in print. All of our volumes and feature books are for sale online, as well as in stores at Gatsby Books in Long Beach, CA and Skylight Books in the Los Feliz Village in Los Angeles, CA.
