Shade Mountain Press is looking for literary fiction thats politically engaged, that challenges the status quo and gender/class/race privilege. We look for work thats wise, raucous, joyful, angry, alive. Both realism and its various alternatives (magic realism / fabulism / slipstream / the fantastic/ dystopianism) are welcome, as long as the work is literary rather than genre fiction.
