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. Our EIC curates and hosts a monthly reading series in The Red Room at KGB Bar, NYC. As a micro-press and journal for cultural omnivores, we aim to nurture experimentation in the arts and encourage broad-mindedness and cultural inclusion.
We began in 2013 as the webzine, Digging Through The Fat | ripping out the heart. Back then we wrote: “Digging through the Fat is a call for literary action. What we want from literature is truth, beauty, and humanity, but artists have to dig through the fat to get to these ideals. We are a literary website committed to promoting the work of writers, poets, and publishers. Our world is bloated with distractions. Meaning has become a malleable commodity. We are Romantics and believe Art, in all its forms, is the exception..”
