Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Originally founded by editor-in-chief Nat Raum in 2019 as a photobook press for lens-based artists of marginalized genders, Fifth Wheel Press is a space for those who are historically underrepresented in creative communities. We aim to publish dynamic art and writing by queer, trans, and gender-nonconforming creatives in the form of monographs, zines, anthologies, chapbooks, and more. We believe a truly inclusive space must be intersectional; as such, we welcome, celebrate, and prioritize submissions from those who belong to other marginalized groups in addition to the queer community, including but not limited to BIPOC, disabled, and neurodivergent artists and writers. We value honesty, integrity, and empathy above all. Our published artists and writers possess not only an exceptional level of talent that we want to honor, but also a demonstrated understanding of these values.
