Digging Press, LLC is an independent publisher. We publish the literary and arts journal, Digging Through The Fat, and a chapbook series. We also produce the podcast, Digging Through with Gessy Alvarez. We began as a call for literary action in 2014. As an organization, we aim to fire up the fun in the literary and visual arts. We like experiments and even failures. We relish in the avant-garde. We want to encourage risks and redefine narrative.
