Editorial Policy

We encourage risks that redefine narrative. We are not afraid to publish the cruel, harsh, and ugly. We love to laugh and bask in the unexpected joy of reading a well-developed, complex piece of literature. That said, don’t try to Wow us. Show us your awesomeness.

Our editor-in-chief (EIC) reviews all submissions and forwards selections to the assistant editors and readers. The assistant editors and readers review these selections, judge the works’ readiness for publication, and report back to the EIC. The EIC may ask assistant editors and readers for more feedback and/or editorial suggestions. Assistant editors and readers will only be in direct communication with EIC. The EIC makes all final decisions regarding 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!

Email submissions are not acceptable. Please use our Submittable link below and read our guidelines carefully.
