Created in 1994, Via Dolorosa Press is the foremost small press publisher of chapbooks hinged on existential and humanist themes. We concentrate on providing quality poetry, literary fiction, and philosophical essays to discriminating readers looking for something unique to whet their appetites. All of our works express an inner darkness, torment, or suffering, supporting our crusade to glorify the human experience in an increasingly apathetic world and to encourage catharsis as a means of self-healing.

Now that we have moved into the 21st century, what VDP has to offer is even more important. In the wake of an Electronical Revolution, and in the midst of war, terrorism, and negative politics, the need for emotion and support is greater. Our promise to you is that VDP will be here.
