Editorial Focus

We encourage risks that redefine narrative. We are not afraid to publish the cruel, harsh, and ugly. We love to laugh and bask in the unexpected joy of reading a well-developed, complex piece of literature. That said, don't try to Wow us. Show us your awesomeness.

Tips From the Editor

We welcome submissions from ALL. We especially want to encourage more submissions from women and non-binary writers, writers of color, and the LGBTQIA community. Help Digging Through The Fat’s community grow in diversity and beauty!

Please read our submission guidelines for each genre’s specific reading period.
