From my inbox, from Annah ♥...
Deviant Type is a new, independent press project dedicated to publishing transgressive, powerful literature written by queer, POC, and/or working class & poor artists. Our goal is to actively seek out and distribute poetry, creative non-fiction, lyric essays, graphic novels, zine collections, and fiction with non-traditional narratives (whether in form or content).
Simply put, our aim is to distribute literature that expresses the true complexity of being alive and the possibilities for personal and social change through literary art.
Deviant Type is a cultural hijacking, a reclamation of independent print-media, and a fearless act of literacy/art activism!
We need your support in order to get this project up & off the ground http://www.indiegogo.com/devianttype
We hope to release our first book, Inbetweenland, by Jacks Ashley McNamara (co-founder of the Icarus Project http://theicarusproject.net/), on March 1st, 2013. For a full description about this book and it's author, see http://devianttype.net/bookstitles
Our goal is to raise $5,000 in the next 60 days, purely through community-funded support. We believe that this is possible- we believe that this is a project that will be of long term benefit to us all, readers and writers alike. Lets make this happen together!
If you're able to donate to our start-up fund, or if you know other folx who might (family members, colleagues, coworkers, etc), click here or please pass this link on http://www.indiegogo.com/devianttype
PS- there are lots of great perks to choose from when you make a donation (and more perks TBA)
With Love, Revolt, & Solidarity through Archive,
