Digging Through The Fat is a literary and arts journal published by Digging Press, LLC. As a journal and micro-press for cultural omnivores, we aim to fire up the fun in the literary and visual arts.

We began as a call for literary action in 2014. We see that our world is bloated with distractions. Meaning has become a malleable commodity. As romantics, we believe in the promise of artistic expression.
