MISSION: We at Cutthroat are dedicated to providing a safe space for a diversity of writers. There is no room for the rhetoric of hate and fear in our pages or in any facet of our publishing practice. We strive to publish work that promotes equality, truth, and justice, work that addresses such important issues as racism, homophobia, sexism, xenophobia, etc. We promote equity for all races, cultures and creeds, LGBTQ Rights, women's rights, immigrant rights, animal rights, the rights of the differently abled, and environmental justice, work that promotes the wild inside and out and enhances the human condition as well as the condition of all beings on our planet. We believe in freedom of speech, freedom from oppression, we believe in Indigenous language preservation, in equity and in supporting such movements as Black Lives Matter, No More Deaths, and #Metoo.

We humbly thank you for your patience with all the delays we've have in getting out Cutthroat 28. The issue is in the works, the stars are aligning, but CT 28, THE NATURE OF NATURE AND HUMAN NATURE,a great collection, probably won't see print until late October.
Meanwhile, we are accepting submissions of poetry, short stories and nonfiction for CT29: TAKING LIBERTIES: WRITERS RESPOND TO RECENT SUPREME COURT DECISIONS.
