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. As a micro-press and journal for cultural omnivores, we aim to nurture experimentation in the arts and encourage broad-mindedness and cultural inclusion.
Simultaneous submissions are accepted as long as they are indicated as such and the submission is withdrawn from Submittable immediately upon acceptance elsewhere. Only previously unpublished prose works will be considered for publication.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 do not solicit writers and poets. All works published at Digging Through The Fat are selected from our hefty slushpile. On occasion we will solicit work for the Storytellers segment for our podcast, Digging Through with Gessy Alvarez.
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.
