Another New Calligraphy hopes to deliver small acts of wonder while facilitating an appreciation of unique experiences and perspectives. Our catalog strives to showcase diverse voices while honoring the stories they tell and the communities they represent.

The press is always on the lookout for more music and nonfiction, as well as further opportunities to broaden the inclusivity of its community. Marginalized creators are highly encouraged to consider Another New Calligraphy as a home for their work.

What Are Birds? is a literary journal looking for work that enthralls us. We are especially excited about hybrid work that crosses genre boundaries or exists outside of genre altogether. We understand the dire need for representation and diversity and strive to be changing the trends in publishing. We strongly encourage queer, trans, nonbinary, POC, femme, neurodivergent, disabled, (and any other writers who lack representation) to submit to our journal.

We like to be surprised; we like writing that transports us with strong voices and a sense of place. We like work that’s thoughtful and cathartic, that embraces conflict and isn’t afraid to take risks. We love pieces that blur genre boundaries.
