Dzanc pursues literary fiction and eBooks. They published their own list of independent 20 writers to watch in response to the New Yorker's list of "20 Under 40", which they felt was too establishment-oriented.
Published authors include Roy Kesey, Yannick Murphy, Terese Svoboda, Allison Amend, Jeff Parker, Peter Selgin, Laura van den Berg, Anne Valente, Robert Coover, Lance Olsen, Joseph McElroy, Robert Lopez, Evan Lavender-Smith, Jen Michalski, Dawn Raffel, J. Robert Lennon, Adam Klein, Okey Ndibe, Mary Biddinger, David Galef, Aimee Parkison, Kyle Minor, Kelly Cherry.
Dzanc cancelled publication of Hesh Kestin's 2019 novel The Siege of Tel Aviv following criticism on social media that termed the book "Islamophobic." Publisher Steve Gillis explained that "It was never our intent to publish a novel that shows Muslims in a bad light... Our mistake was not gauging the climate and seeing how the book would be perceived in 2019."
As a non-profit, Dzanc cannot "own" another company, so these are not "imprints" in the usual publishing business sense.
