Many of you probably already saw this on Alas, but I’m posting here for good measure:
Dinah Press, a new small press devoted to publishing the work of marginalized voices, is seeking 1-2 passionate and committed individuals to join its permanent editorial collective. We are also seeking volunteers to donate their time and talent to design, publicity, event coordination, and other needs.
While submissions will be open to all writers, Dinah Press’s main mission is to fill in the gaps in today’s literary landscape by prioritizing fiction, nonfiction, and poetry by people of color, trans people, people with disabilities, members of colonized peoples, and other talented writers whose work has been deemed “unmarketable” by mainstream publishers. Dinah Press will also blur the boundaries between artist and editor by inviting each author it publishes to join the editorial board for one year. All publishing and editorial decisions will be made collectively.
If interested, please send a letter of interest detailing your experience in editing, writing, publishing, activism, or other related endeavors, along with your vision of what you can bring to Dinah Press, to dinahpress at gmail com. Please do not apply if you’re not sure you can commit 1-5 hours a week to the project for at least one year. This will most likely be an unpaid position. For more information, email us or visit dinahpress.com (but be aware that the site is under construction).
Book reviews coming soon, I promise!
