Editorial Focus

Deep Overstock was started in 2018 by booksellers who realized their coworkers were paid to shelve books, but were working on their own writing and had dreams of shelving their own books. They created a journal that supported booksellers in that dream by opening a space to publish their writing and challenging them to write in genres they might not have tried before.
