We publish fiction and non-fiction highlighting important social, environmental, and cultural issues, and seek to promote voices which would otherwise go unheard.

If you feel your work is a good fit for Compassiviste Publishing, please use the link below or by emailing submissions@compassivistepublishing.com with the subject header: ‘Submission: [Manuscript Title], [Author Name]’.
