Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Toad Hall Editions offers 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 publish the work of women writers and artists—progressive, LGBTQIA+, immigrant, minority, or otherwise still-too-often unheard voices. We are looking for beacons—authentic and inspiring writers, poets and artists, both new and established, whose work we will help to refine, support, publish and promote.
