Plympton. A Literary Studio
Plympton is a literary studio that innovates in digital publishing. Through partnerships, we are behind Recovering the Classics, helped launch the Twitter Fiction Festival, run the literary CODEX Hackathon, created a curated mobile reading service, produced a virtual reality adaptation of George Saunders’ Lincoln in the Bardo, and are currently in the process of building a permanent library collection of fiction and nonfiction shorts.
You can read about us in The Boston Globe, buy our books at Warby Parker, host your own pop-up gallery of our covers, or check out the immersive Lincoln in the Bardo VR experience at NYTVR.
Our partners span the gamut from large to small, established and emerging. They include the New York Public Library, Amazon, the White House, Audible, Twitter, Harvard Book Store, HarperCollins, Warby Parker, the Digital Public Library of America, the Creative Action Network, Worb Corp, among many others. Always, our mission is to push the boundaries of great storytelling in the digital age.
We look at the publishing ecosystem holistically, from retail to editorial to tech to design. A number of our DailyLit stories have been noted in The Best American Short Stories series. Our Rooster app has been called a “game-changing startup.” And our covers have been highlighted by the White House.
We passionately believe publishing is a craft — from the design, to the prose, to the reading experience — and are eager to move the needle.
