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 2013. 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 creative risks and redefine our cultural narrative.
Simultaneous submissions are accepted as long as they are indicated as such and the submission is withdrawn from Submittable immediately upon acceptance elsewhere. Only previously unpublished prose works will be considered for publication.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!
