Vast Literary Press was established in 2021 as an extension of the literary community its three founders discovered in one another. We wanted to make a space that feels like a place—one where people can come together, share words, and seek knownness. Here, we gather to shine a light into the vast chasm of human experience.
We believe creating and consuming art is a radical act that fosters empathy. Speaking and listening sparks change. At Vast, we champion artists and provide a platform for their work. We also celebrate the audience who encourages them to keep exploring.
Chasm Magazine is our first project: a quarterly online magazine publishing bold work from diverse voices. Our first issue was published in January 2022.
