Our Vision & Core Values

We are an anti-racist, feminist, creative organization that . . .

  • adopts language as a vehicle for social change;

  • employs writing as a way to resist, express oneself, promote creativity, encourage collaboration, find healing, and award power;

  • promotes marginalized voices and unrepresented writers in publishing, especially folks of color, queer folks, and trans/GNC folks;

  • creates a community that values all femininities, gender identities, sexualities, races, (dis)abilities, and nationalities.
