What do we publish?

Great question! For manuscripts, We are currently focused on fiction, poetry, and a combination of those and visual art with an intersectional lens. All works must be inclusive and anti-racist, anti-sexist, non-discriminatory.   

We love all realms of speculative fiction: sci-fi, cli-fi, visionary fiction: if it’s good we’ll probably be into it. We also like poetry and fiction that tackle political and social topics with nuance. We like experimental stuff. Do you have a sci fi poetry collection? We’d love to read it. Do you have a collection of short fiction with illustrations? Cool. We’re open to it. We’ll at least take a look. 

We are also interested in any non-fiction with feminist leanings, social critiques, self call-outs, reflections, ruminations, you name it! 

We don’t care if you have a degree in writing, but we care that your writing is thoughtful and evokes feeling in the reader. We want to have an experience when we’re reading your manuscript.
