“True art is to seek and affirm life” – John Gardner


Figroot Press is a publication for dreamers, explorers, and story-tellers; we love art for art’s sake. We tend to publish art that is ethereal, strange, knowing, mythological, stygian, and so on. We love meditations on the human condition; we want the hard things to say, expressed beautifully.

We hope to share beautiful words and art with the world, and we’d love it if you would accompany us on this journey.
