Willow was founded on a belief in the power of storytelling.
The respite of escape through imagination.
The validation of seeing yourself in a character.
The development of understanding others.
Willow exists to host an empathetic discourse through art and storytelling by carefully gathering work that you can both identify with and escape into. The press creates and collaborates with independent writers, artists, and other small presses to curate a collection of stories and goods that feature representation and imagination.
I hope your experience with Willow is a bewitching blend of equal parts candor and curiosity. I hope you float away from the real world, while also feeling more grounded in your own body. I hope you feel seen. I hope you hear a new perspective.
I hope this little haven is a place you can both find and lose yourself.
