Digging Through The Fat

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


Digging Through The Fat is a web journal for cultural omnivores. We began in 2013 as a call for literary action. We want to encourage risks and redefine narratives. Our mission is to nurture experimentation in the arts.

We showcase prose, poetry, and visual arts from emerging and established creative folks throughout the year. We hold two reading periods: poetry in the Spring/Summer and fiction in the Fall/Winter. We also periodically publish personal essays, interviews, reviews, artworks, and links to published works.

DiggingThroughTheFat.com is part of Digging Press, LLC, an organization committed to promoting the literary and visual arts.


Accepted Work

Accepted works will appear on the Digging Through The Fat website. With permission from our published contributors, we may include accepted works in promotional material, and, at a later date, in a Digging Through The Fat anthology. Therefore, submitted work must be previously unpublished. 

Web links to works submitted for our Community page are not considered for promotional material or the anthology.
