GENERAL GUIDE

WHO WE ARE.

WOKE MAGIC Press (WMP) is a small but mighty publishing haus with a whole lot of heart and a BIG mission to create the kind of world we want to live in NOW.

We are a haus of Intersectionality. 

We are also a collective who are doing the work we are requiring of our authors and the world. Meaning, we are continually unlearning, deepening and broadening our anti-ism work*, and being real-world models of the kind of change we wish to see ✊🏾. 

Our mission as an indie publishing haus is to revolutionaize the spirtual publsihing industry by infusing our publishing process with the same care, energy, and passion as every maker puts into their book, deck, and/or art.

 We are commited and bound to our vision of radical inclusivity in spiritual space and making sure the books, authors, stories, and genres look more like us. 

WHO WE REPRESENT.

Intersectional, Queer, BIPOC, Disabled, and Marginalized Independent creators, healers, visionaries, changemakers. 

We are not looking to haus creators who are already published with another major publishing house.
Caveat: we ARE open to rehoming you if you no longer feel like BIG Money Pub no longer aligns with your values and mission.

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR.

BOOKS: Our sweet spot is working with authors who are midway to almost finished with their manuscripts.

DECKS: Same. Strong idea with sample cards are our jam.

If your are just starting out, we want to hear from you too!! #leavenovisionarybehind

We are always open to being pitched a passion-filled, mission-rooted idea in need of a bit of physical manifesting help. 

To get started, fill out this pitch form. If we feel your idea aligns with our vibe, we’ll reach out to you to schedule a short 15-min plática with one of our creative guides. 

Even if you’re not a fit for us, you are for someone. We’ll share that with you too so your not just waiting around or checking your email every minute. We’ve been there before. And we don’t want to do it to you. 

WHAT WE’RE NOT GONNA DO.

As of right now, we are NOT accepting simultaneous submissions.  Why? Because we aren’t playing a numbers game–and we don’t want to collaborate with humxns who are either. What that means is, we are consciously stating our boundaries to turn off creators who are in such a rush to get published that they’ll “settle” for ANY publisher.

We are NOT just any publisher. We are haus with ganas and heart. Full and devoted to reciprocity and conscious decision making on all sides.

We want the work and souls we haus to be too.

Plus, it’s really important in the artistic creation process that both all souls involved want to be there, creating and co-collaborating with each other.

We want YOU to want to work with and be a part of our haus as much as we do you.

 

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT.

Devotion. Commitment. To your vision and art. We are a gente of creators, healers, writers, and makers ourselves. And we are are deeply devoted to putting wholehearted, representational, radical work into the world–whether it’s our own or someone elses.

(R)Evolution doesn’t happen on a linear timeline. And neither will our mission to transform the lack of representation in publishing industry–specifically in the spiritual realm.

Please be patient when waiting to hear back from us. We are grassroots, but we are growing.

🗓 Current callback timeline: 3 to 4 weeks.

 

 

*Anti-ism work is what we call the interconencted work of dismantling racism, ablism, sexism, genderims, colonzism–all. the isms. We are not free until ALL of US of FREE.
