Bored Wolves (www.boredwolves.com/IG @boredwolves) is an independent publisher run by Stefan Lorenzutti and Joanna Osiewicz-Lorenzutti, based in Kraków and the Polish Highlands. We are dedicated to publishing poet’s books, artist’s books, zines, and comix, with many of our books blending and overlapping these categories, in carefully crafted but always affordable editions. Working with authors, artists, and graphic designers across borders and languages, mediums and disciplines, we are committed to the individuality of each title, and curious about the patterns and echoes that emerge between them.
I began Bored Wolves in 2010–11, in collaboration with Joanna, as a book-at-a-time imprint for publishing my poems in a way that felt true to myself. In September 2020, Bored Wolves pivoted toward publishing other poets and artists, beginning with Sevinç Çalhanoğlu’s My Life in Curves Recently, a zine of hand-drawn marker graphs.
With the publication of ten titles, 2021 was the year Bored Wolves became quantitatively not-micro. Going forward, we remain qualitatively committed to immersing ourselves in each project with the same concentration, dedication, and affection as in years past when we were publishing that one single book at a time.
