How to Buy

Cutlines Press sells two different types of items: downloadable and physical, or print, books and zines.

Downloadable Books and Zines

Downloadable zines are offered through Gumroad, which is embedded in our website. When you click “Download this book/zine!” a Gumroad window will pop up. You can choose what you want to pay, starting with the base price— usually the base price is $1, or $0 for short stories. If you have a coupon code, you can enter it after choosing your price.

You’ll then be taken to checkout where you can use credit, debit or PayPal. Currently, Gumroad allows for multiple purchases at the same time if the items are all displayed together on the page, such as in our topic or author pages. Otherwise, you will need to pay for each item separately. This is a Gumroad limitation that we hope will be changed in the future!

Head to All Downloadable Books & Zines to see all of our downloadable items at once! Then you can add them to an editable shopping cart that appears at the right hand side.

Need a simpler solution? Just go directly to our shop on the Gumroad website and use the shopping cart there.

Print Books and Zines

Print books and zines use a Paypal shopping cart. You can pay with Paypal, debit or credit, and the price of the items includes domestic shipping. International shipping costs will be added at checkout.

Submissions Information

Saturday February 20, 2016 · Posted by dylan ce

Cutlines Press has several ways of gathering submissions:

  • We solicit from authors and artists directly;
  • We maintain relationships with authors, outside editors and artists to produce their work on an ongoing basis;
  • We solicit short contributions for compilation books and zines from the public; and
  • We occasionally solicit manuscripts.

Submissions may be made by emailing editor@cutlinespress.com or by sending a submission to our Tumblr. In general, unsolicited work will not be accepted; however, you are always welcome to submit in case it catches our eye or fits into an ongoing project.

We come from backgrounds in reading science fiction (Ursula K. LeGuin, Samuel Delany, Octavia Butler, Frank Herbert), cut-up (William S. Burroughs, Brion Gysin, Genesis P-Orridge), queer and trans zines, magical and spiritually resonant YA (A Wrinkle in Time, The Golden Compass) and horror (Lovecraft, Ligotti). In writing, we’re looking for adventurous styles, experimental forms, and the artfully managed infusion of truly radical, transformative ideas into quality writing. Overall, it’s talent and innovation that probably take the day.

We don’t have a clear line drawn around who is allowed to participate and who is not. We will accept work from people of any sexuality and gender but tend to look for work that is informed by queerness at a very deep level even if it doesn’t explicitly deal with it (“The literature that would exist in an all-queer world.”) Many of us are highly motivated artists and authors who produce work relentlessly– but also recognizing that many people struggle with that, we hope that the press itself provides some of the structure and community that’s conducive to finishing work. We are interested in building a true avant-garde artistic community that works in concert and draws inspiration from others.

About Cutlines Press

Saturday February 20, 2016 · Posted by dylan ce

Cutlines Press is a new micro-publishing imprint for queer and trans authors. Our desire to publish came out of our writing and our need to create a new kind of queer publishing house that can accommodate our interests, which include science fiction and experimental styles. We are still creating ourselves through analysis of our recent feedback survey and our own process.
