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 rely on donations to support our mission and keep our archive open and free. We appreciate any support you can give.
We showcase prose, poetry, and visual arts from emerging and established creative folks throughout the year. We also periodically publish personal essays, interviews, reviews, artworks, and links to published works.
Simultaneous submissions are accepted as long as they are indicated as such and the submission is withdrawn from Submittable immediately upon acceptance elsewhere. Only previously unpublished prose works will be considered for publication.
We welcome submissions from ALL. We especially want to encourage more submissions from women and non-binary writers, writers of color, and the LGBTQIA community. Help Digging Through The Fat’s community grow in diversity and beauty!
