In 2007, ArtsEtc began its book publishing imprint, AE Books, specializing in antholgies. Its flagship publication was the groundbreaking Shouts from the Outfield: The ArtsEtc Cricket Anthology, which was launched during Cricket World Cup in 2007. Green Readings, Barbados: The First Five Years—an anthology and overview of the annual environmental readings ArtsEtc has staged since 2008—came out in 2012. The next major works from AE Books include a proposed general anthology of Barbadian Literature and another Winning Words NIFCA anthology in collaboration with Barbados’ National Cultural Foundation.
