Water Sprouts Collective:

We are two women writers in Phoenix, AZ. We aim to bring poetry to the community through publications, workshops, and events. We are committed to the self-empowerment and community-driven empowerment that comes with sharing your story, creating spaces full of bravery, joy, and freedom of self-expression. By the same token, we aim to hold ourselves and others accountable for dismantling any dialogue and actions rooted in hatred, selfishness, racism, colonialism, sexism, ableism, classism, and snobbery. No matter who you are, you are welcome here. 

little somethings press: a collection of small writings

little somethings press: a collection of small writings aims to highlight the growing wave of micro-literature from flash prose to micropoetry, while navigating the space between literary journals and zines. The hand-bound and printed journals embody the spirit of DIY, while publishing high-quality work from the Phoenix community.

Intersections: The Valley of the Sun

This zine/chapbook is a realization of home–flawed, and somewhat whole. Each section navigates privilege, politics, and search for place in a physical intersection in the Valley of the Sun. The illustrations are cutting and pastings of multiple layers of paper: old envelopes, bags, and new textures.
