We Need Your Support

Want to see more inclusive fiction? Support our crowdfunding campaign!

This campaign is to fund the first year expenses forĀ Cuil Press, a new publisher that will specialize in diverse and #ownvoices genre fiction. The publishing industry does not welcome non-mainstream work. Too many authors have been told their stories are “too ethnic” or “unrelatable” to mainstream readers or that a character could be part of only one minority group. We want to change that.

We are a small team, Jess, Michon and Michelle, with a lot of experience. We’ve written and published books, worked as editors and marketers, organized communities and gone to art school. Between the three of us we’ve done a bit of everything.

In time, we hope to release multiple books each month, in ebook and audio format.

So please head over to our campaign page, pick a perk, and help us create inclusive fiction!
