About Sword & Kettle Press

Hello! We are Sword & Kettle Press, a tiny independent publishing house established in 2015. We publish feminist speculative writing, create resources for writers & publishers, and make books by hand. We have a team of editors based across the United States, and our online shop is run from Somerville, MA.

We've published fantasy, poetry, interactive & hybrid writing, sci-fi, horror, solarpunk, fairy tales, mythological retellings, and more! And, we seek out meaningful representation of voices that have been historically excluded from mainstream fantasy.

Here's what we think feminist speculative writing looks like: our series of 17 mini-chapbooks written by nonbinary and women authors; our collection of queer & trans fairy tales; and our collection of stories that deal with surviving, healing from, and seeking justice for sexual violence.

YOUR SUPPORT HELPS US:

Publish incredible speculative writing. We currently pay out of pocket to host the websites we use to run our press and publish our digital journal, and buy supplies for our print books. The more funds we have stored up, the more we'll be able to create.

Pay our writers & editors. We do currently pay all of our writers a small honorarium, with rates varying per project, but we aim to increase all payments. We also have an all-volunteer staff that we'd like to pay for all of their hard work.

Build a feminist business. We want to run a business that upholds our values and ethical standards. Making ethical business choices (such as purchasing supplies from small business rather than Amazon) often costs more money, and we want to make sure we feel good about all aspects of our press.

There are so many stories to tell, and so many books we want to publish! Please support Sword & Kettle Press in publishing inclusive feminist speculative writing, and paying the wonderful writers & editors who make our work possible.
