Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Toad Hall Editions publishes the work of women and gender-expressive writers and artists—progressive, LGBTQIA+, BIPOC, or otherwise still-too-often unheard voices. We hope to offer an alternative publishing platform to those whose work lives in the liminal spaces and who struggle to find themselves represented in the more traditional publishing arenas. We are looking for authentic and inspiring writers, poets and artists, both new and established, whose work we will help to refine, support, publish and promote.
