About Us

We believe in democratizing the publishing world. The art of Writing and the Joy of Publishing should be available to all voices, generations and levels of experiences. A nation’s culture resides in the hearts and souls of its people. If we are not reading the work of our own people, then we are not writing our own history.

Red Soil Publishing was founded to amend the lack of publishing opportunities for young writers on Aruba, Bonaire & Curacao. Queer writers; New writers, Experienced writers, Brave writers … We all deserve the opportunity to share our pen with the World. Our goal is to introduce a decolonized Afro-Indigenous perspective in the literary culture of Aruba and the Caribbean.

The languages only differ in grammar, their pronunciation and their most common words.
My name is Joshuar Gomez and I am the founder of Red Soil Publishing. As an Indigenous Queer Aruban, I have made it my mission to write and re-write Aruban history from an Indigenous perspective. I am the author of 'Amen cu Sanger' and currently studying at the Vrije Universiteit of Amsterdam. Currently working on making literature accessible to all Arubans through RSP and our new spelling checker for Papiamento.
