Our mission is to engage with the wider literary community. To do this, we are committed to publishing a variety of new, emerging and established voices. Further, we are committed to inclusion and equity in publishing. We highly encourage submissions from underrepresented & marginalized voices. Further, due to the timeliness of the Resist series, we are particularly interested in work from members of those communities affected by the events.
