We're specifically interested in pieces that criticize the status quo and pieces that connect stories to our real lives. We believe that stories are never simply stories and we want to push people to imagine that literature, the world, and our culture are not only inextricably tied but one in the same.

Bookish Brews is working on building a space for storytellers of systematically marginalized identities. We highlight exclusively diverse writers and are particularly interested in doing work to dismantle the hierarchies in literature to fight for space for more of our stories, brick by brick.
