Our Press

In addition to our biannual literary journal, Foglifter Press publishes books and chapbooks by emerging and established LGBTQ+ writers. In recent years, we have collaborated with other queer-minded organizations and collectives to showcase the amazing writers and artists of the queer and trans communities and enrich the writing world with more LGBTQ+ stories and experiences.

Home is Where You Queer Your Heart

New anthology from Foglifter Press explores the complex and varied meanings of ‘home’ through poetry and prose from LGBTQ+ authors around the country, informed by the need and desire to create ‘chosen families’ and how those can be disrupted and inspired by gentrification and displacement.

Still Here San Francisco : Anthology

In Still Here San Francisco: an Anthology of Queer and Trans People Raised in San Francisco, survivors of displacement and other results of gentrification and oppression find their voice and tell stories of survival. Still Here San Francisco is an annual performance and cultural documentation project that reveals the experiences of Queer/LGBTQI2S+ individuals raised in San Francisco and still living in San Francisco/Bay Area. Each year, the annual show is one of the most popular parts of the National Queer Arts Festival in June. 

Flower of Ancestry : Queer Ancestors Project Anthology

Flower of Ancestry, named for its cover art by Shannon Prasad, features work by 20 creative writing and printmaking students: al aguas, Brea Weinreb, Destiny Evans, Fernando Miguel, Gato Gucumatz, Isabel Treviño, Keira, Kimiko Goeller, Lia Dun, madhvi trivedi-pathak, Marina Claveria, Mateo Sánchez Morales, Maya Salcido, Nidhi Parixit Velani, Queen Sen Sen, Ruby Harrison-Clay, Satän, Shannon Prasad, Shō Nakashima, and Takara Campbell, with creative writing director Celeste Chan and Queer Ancestors Project artistic director Katie Gilmartin.

Tender : Queer Ancestors Project Anthology

In these pages, students of the Queer Ancestors Project respond to their ancestors through original writing and art. Sylvia Rivera compels us to stay and fight, speaking to poets “becoming trans femme.” Friends fallen to suicide, “mute ash,” and Guan Yin offer queer elegies, poems to transform trauma. Serpent women, genderqueer mermaids, and glitter crusted love found in the sea, sky, and clubs queerly remind us of our community’s defiance, beauty, survival, and creativity. Declarations of self-love combat silence, and the real life struggles of poverty, isolation, migration, homo/transphobia. Arranged in conversation, Tender forms a stirring collective. We must never forget, as student Jose Francisco says in “Rise”: “we hold the power to shape the future, and, together, to shake these walls down.” 

Girasol, by Vianney Casas

Vianney Casas’s debut poetry chapbook Girasol ushers readers into a sensuous, menacing landscape where physical, emotional, and spiritual boundaries dissolve and reform in unexpected, profound ways. With minimal punctuation, shifts in tense, and deft weaving of English and Spanish, Girasol has a dream-like quality, suspending the reader inside a trauma that’s simultaneously in the past and ever-present.
