The Muscaliet is a hybrid, mythical beast: it is a combination of a hare, squirrel, weasel and boar. Similarly, we believe that writing is a process of synthesis; of arranging, combining, contrasting and layering ideas through language.


Muscaliet Press, established in 2017, is an independent publisher of poetry, short fiction and creative nonfiction. Our aim is to publish new, innovative work that embodies this approach: bold, interdisciplinary, interweaving, fluid, processual writing, both formal and free-form.


We are interested in writing that is not afraid to explore, expand and challenge the definitions of traditional forms, ideas and theories.


We are fascinated by the interplay of different written forms of expression, and the process of collaboration between writers: the correspondence of ideas and forms.


Our vision is to encourage and champion writers new and established who work within genres and modes, across forms, or anywhere in between.
