About

CUPCAKES.jpg
 
 

SELFISH is...

a digital + print platform featuring memoir from the radically evolving.

borne out of a desire to examine generations of voicelessness, lack of agency, unawareness of and inability to articulate the generational effects of patriarchal oppression, Selfish documents the sensation of collectively shedding the skins of our silence and building our true creative narratives. each issue is a print mixtape time capsule exploring the esoteric themes of our development through endless mediums, including photography & video, comics & illustration, poetry & essays, zine excerpts, and other printable media.

in our two years, we've launched a successful Kickstarter, sold out of our first two issues, been carried in over twenty-five independent shops across the US and Canada, hosted readings, parties, and literary events, and tabled at several book & zine fairs. nurtured originally by Skylight Books in Los Feliz, Los Angeles, anchored by a cross-country tour adventure, and rounded out by our recent takeover of Tiny Hero at Little Skips in Bushwick, Brooklyn, our community has expanded fortuitously, growing with every issue, reading, and party.

we work in print twice a year, with issues coming out every spring and fall. submissions will be open at the end of summer - stay tuned!
