soft surface

digital journal, residency, and bookshop


soft surface publishes poetry and contemporary art projects by women, LGBTQIA, gnc folks, BIPOC, and/or otherwise marginalized voices. accepted contributors are paid. submissions are always open.

to submit work or request information on a digital residency, email me here.

an announcement from our spring digital resident natalie jane edson (@baby_of_air): “I'm choosing to not continue with the residency out of respect for Black lives and the seriousness of the moment we're in. Now is not the time for me to take up space, and to continue writing work within the confines of the project I set out to do would require me to tune out and minimize the realities of the outside world. I'm choosing instead to devote my time and my technical ability to advancing the movement.”

soft surface fully supports natalie’s decision and her residency has ended early. for the summer, soft surface will be on hiatus for research and visioning.
