Window Cat Press began as an idea tossed around between friends. We felt something was missing from the lit zine scene and thought, "hey, let's create that space!" Six months later, our first issue is out and we couldn't be more proud.
We're thrilled to share this collection of pieces that speak to who we are, where we've come from and where we're going. They've made strange worlds real, and pointed out the strangeness of reality. These works forge connections between human beings and the world we live in (as well as the somewheres we've never traveled, gladly beyond.) What a diverse range of styles and perspectives in our first issue! The tools our artists use both engage with earlier traditions and innovate to tackle the task of encapsulating the present. These works manage to make connections despite Otherness--or rather because of Otherness--while exploring sexuality, gender and identity. All that while keeping things playful. AND poignant. What skill!
Many thanks to the contributors who made this issue possible as well as everyone who's supported us along the way. We couldn't be more pleased with the little community we're starting to grow together. Thank you all for coming on board with us.
