About Us

Sundog Lit is committed to publishing pieces that engage with tension, introspection, empathy, considered positionality, thoughtful form play, emotional courage, and musicality.

Sundog Lit is equally committed to uplifting voices from all corners in hopes of breaking down ideas of who is widely read and rebelling against normative power structures that stifle expression.

We are honored to be a platform for artists to showcase their life-giving work, and we care deeply about participating in a loving, ethical, and intersectional literary community.

We hope you like what we got going on. Check out our latest issue, or better yet, submit your own work. Got questions not answered here? Email us at sundoglit@gmail.com.
