Welcome To Universal Write Publications
UWP is committed to building a community of authors, scholars, readers, and thinkers. We believe we are living in a time of change, a time of purpose and time to make a difference in our individual spaces and places of cultural significance. We recognize the importance of social and historical records, which draws from a diverse past to enrich our common future.
As UWP Books is a small independent press with a very niche audience, we encourage you to understand the mission and vision of UWP, as all authors here are family working towards the mission of community and legacy building.
