  • Statement
    Anomalous Press (fka Drunken Boat) is an international journal of literature and the arts. We provide a platform for works of art that challenge conventions of form and format, of voice and genre. Anomalous Press is committed to actively seeking out and promoting the work of marginalized and underrepresented artists, including especially people of color, women, queer, differently abled, and gender nonconforming artists. Anomalous Press recognizes that aesthetics are not neutral, and that difference tends to be marginalized. Anomalous Press is committed to encouraging experimentation in the arts.
