Publisher’s description: Anomaly is committed to actively seeking out and promoting the work of marginalized and underrepresented artists, including especially people of color, women, queer, differently abled, and gender nonconforming artists.
We recognize that, as Kazim Ali wrote brilliantly to Aimee Nezhukumatathil: “The notion of an unbiased concept “literary merit” is an inherently and inescapably racist principle. An institution that relies on it is by definition a white supremacist institution.” Anomaly recognizes that aesthetics are not neutral, and that difference tends to be marginalized.
Anomaly is committed to encouraging experimentation in the arts.
Anomaly believes in the importance of compensating artists for their w ork, and we are working toward financial sustainability, which will allow us to compensate our contributors and our editorial staff for their work.
