Balance of Seven is a small independent press owed by a cis woman + a trans man. The reason the press exists is to provide a platform for writers who want to be more hands-on and have more input in publishing their creative work, or who might otherwise feel overwhelmed by the pressures and processes of traditional industry for any number of reasons. The press is a space where they can truly be themselves and be supported, treated with kindness, and achieve great things.

About Balance of Seven

Every story has a soul. We're here to support yours.

WEEKLY LITERARY SALON & CREATIVE SESSION

TUESDAYS AT 5-7 PM PT| 6-8 PM MT | 7-9 PM CT| 8-10 PM ET 
SUNDAYS AT 5-7 PM PT| 6-8 PM MT | 7-9 PM CT| 8-10 PM ET

Each week, the sessions will alternate; for example, if on Week 1, the Literary Salon is on Sunday and the Creative Session is on Tuesday, then on Week 2, the Creative Session will be on Sunday and the Literary Salon will be on Tuesday.

CREATIVE SESSIONS: A get-it-done session that allows you to set aside time for you to put words on the page, and share what you've accomplished. Whether it's journaling, social media content, working on your novel, or something entirely different, you'll set a goal at the beginning of the session, and we'll support you as you put in the effort to reach it! There is an opportunity to create and share during each session, or to simply sit back and listen.

LITERARY SALONS: Every writer needs their tribe. These are the people who support you and your writing, cheering you and understanding your story and your life. Our literary salons are a place for you to connect with like-minded creatives, forge friendships, support, and have fun with one another while growing in your craft and falling even more in love with your creativity.
