Anuwai Publishing & Editing aims to shine a spotlight on minority-female writers and artists, providing them additional options in publishing. Whether new to their craft or skilled veteran, writers and artists, especially female-led, science fiction- and fantasy-genre based, have difficulty getting their query and their work noticed above the masses and into the hands of agents and editors. But thanks to the ever-evolving and -advancing technological age, publishing has become more accessible to the masses at large, who can now publish everything from newsletters to magazines, novels to art books. 


Anuwai Publishing & Editing seeks to help this group of writers and artists believe their dreams of "agented" publication are possible. How? By showcasing these artists in an e-newsletter. We're a small unit with big dreams and bigger goals of growing awareness of this talented pool of writers and artists--whose written or drawn works more accurately reflect our changing society in the U.S. and across the globe--in hopes of opening up the depth of varied talent available to Hollywood and beyond.


Whether poetry, short story, comic book or illustrations, Anuwai Publishing & Editing strives to make huge strides in growing readership and awareness for minority-female writers and artists and, in the future, minority writers and artists of both sexes who feature female-led, multi-ethnic characters in their work.
