Digging Press

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Digging Press is an independent publisher with a strong commitment to fostering experimentation and cultural inclusion in the realms of literature and visual arts. We believe that diversity of voices and eclecticism are essential components of a vibrant creative landscape, and we provide a platform for such voices to thrive.

At Digging Press, our mission is simple: to champion the power of diverse perspectives and artistic expressions. We actively seek out works that challenge the status quo, push boundaries, and open new dialogues. Our goal is to amplify the voices of underrepresented communities and artists, making the literary and visual arts more inclusive and dynamic.

In 2013, Gessy Alvarez began Digging Through The Fat | ripping out the heart as a literary and arts internet platform regularly publishing fiction, poetry, nonfiction, hybrid, and artists spotlights. In 2018, Digging Press LLC was established and a chapbook series award was introduced. 

Our in-house Creative Director takes great pride in meticulously designing each book we publish. We believe that a book is not just a vessel for words but a work of art. Our visually stunning designs ensure that every book we produce is not only a pleasure to read but also a visual representation of the author’s unique vision.

We understand that the publication process can be a daunting journey for authors. That’s why we work closely with each author, providing personalized editorial support from inception to publication. We believe that every author’s voice is distinctive, and we are committed to preserving that uniqueness while enhancing the quality of their work.

At Digging Press, we continue to shape a literary and visual arts landscape that thrives on inclusivity, dynamism, and the relentless pursuit of creative excellence.
