Blue Forge Press
Dedicated to publishing novels, comics, graphic novels, anthologies and poetry collections that shed light on misconceptions and speak for those not spoken for enough, Senior Editor Brianne DiMarco selects books for publication that strive to bring diverse people together.
Founded in 1989, Blue Legacy began with just two divisions -- Blue Forge Press and Blue Forge Gaming. But under the guidance of married couple Jennifer and Brianne DiMarco and their adult children, Maxwell and Faith, the company grew to include Blue Forge Films and Blue Forge Records in 2011. All four divisions share the same goals: To bring light to the shadows and voice to the silence by empowering storytellers from all walks of life and making storytelling platforms and mediums accessible. The DiMarco family continue to be at the heart of the team of volunteers who guide Blue Legacy.
With a focus on education and breaking stereotypes, the DiMarcos pioneered the way publishers, record labels and studios work with their artisans and how books, films, games, and albums are made and marketed. While refusing to become a vanity company (where creators pay for publication or distribution), Blue Legacy maintains its integrity, quality and mission by remaining a traditional studio with a noncommercial twist:
Though always a Washington State registered charity and not-for-profit entity with the highest levels of transparency, in May 2019, Blue Legacy became a federal 501(c)3 nonprofit. Their revolving Board of Directors allows their creative partners to have a voice in all major company decisions and their continued dedication to creating an inclusive, supportive community has never been stronger.
