  • Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
    Anomalous Press provides platforms 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. Anomalous Press publishes chapbooks, the journal Anomaly (fka Drunken Boat), broadsides, and a blog. Find us at anomalouspress.org
