Who We Are
As a non-profit publishing house, Bright Sky Publishing’s goal is to free the press from traditional publishing industry constraints. As a non-profit, we are able to focus on creating books with philanthropic impact rather than looking foremost at a title’s financial impact. Bright Sky Publishing is here to preserve, share, and cultivate the stories of our unique and wonderful region. After noting the success of other non-profit publishing houses across the nation, we determined the best course for the company and the community was to transition from for-profit to non-profit, and the change was endorsed by BSP’s Advisory Board. With the guidance and advice provided by a variety of local philanthropists, Sterling Associates, Nonprofit Elite, and Your Part-Time Controller, and Bright Sky Press’s Advisory Board, we have obtained non-profit status and are prepared for a new era Texas publishing. Going forward with a non-profit structure alleviates the constraints of the traditional publishing model and provides the opportunity to create high quality content with significant cultural impact. The new model sustains the legacy of the original Bright Sky Press and expands its good work in our community. It allows us to focus on showcasing our unique culture and heritage and strengthens Houston’s literary and publishing sector.
