Inclusivity Statement

At Vast Literary Press, cultivating community is central to our mission. We actively strive to create a safe and inclusive space where diversity is not only welcomed but celebrated. 

We are committed to embracing and exploring the expansive human experience and amplifying diverse voices. The world we inhabit is complex, and we believe we can all learn and grow through a deeper understanding of one another.

We denounce racism, bigotry, and sexism, and we do not tolerate any form of harassment or abuse based on race, color, national origin, religion, gender, gender expression, age, disability, sexual orientation, marital status, or military status.

If you ever have concerns regarding violations of these statements, we warmly invite you to contact us at
