Resources for Writers

Zines & Small Presses

At Selcouth Station, we believe in community. No press, zine or writer stands alone and instead of competing with each other, we should work together to get new dynamic voices onto the pixelated and paper page. To this end, every week we will be adding five more zines and small presses to this resource list, so that you can find the perfect place to send your work. Please keep in mind that this is purely a basic directory, it won't be all extensive, and we highly recommend you visit the website of any zine/press you hope to submit to for further guidelines. We will not be held accountable for rejections. If you have a zine or small press you wish to feature on this website, just send us a note via contact@selcouthstation.com. All we ask is a follow on Twitter and/or Facebook, so we can keep an eye on what exciting things you are up to and help promote your work!

We use Wix.com for our website and we were excited to hear from Karol Krol, who has written a handy 2020 'How to build a website fast and easy using Wix' article. We thought this would be useful for writers, presses etc. who are just starting out and need help with those first few steps!
