811 is an experimental press dedicated to creative partnership across language, technology, and the human and non-human world, founded by Aya Natalia Karpińska (@technekai) and Meredith Noelle Finkelstein (@hackerm0m).

The name comes from the Dewey Decimal Classification for U.S. libraries, where call numbers 800–899 designate literature and rhetoric; 811 is the poetry section.
