Frances St Press is an indie publisher run by Ash Watson since 2018. We publish solo and collaborative zines in digital and diy print formats. Frances St Press is committed to providing a platform for openly accessible, innovative works of creative social inquiry.

The flagship publication of Frances St Press is So Fi Zine (ISSN 2209-3028), a sociological fiction zine that aims to open and creatively extend the promise and craft of sociological imagination. The zine publishes short stories, poetry, visual art and other creative works that result from or are inspired by social science research.

Frances St Press is also the home of:

AKE Zine – an interdisciplinary zine of critical feminist arts/research from the Affect, Knowledge and Embodiment: A Critical Feminist Arts/Research workshop series.

Pink Cover – a zine for works across all creative mediums exploring the sentimental, domestic, sensitive, nostalgic, emotional, erotic, sensual, romantic sad, joyful and in between moments in life.

Algorithmic Micropolitics – a collaborative zine made at UNSW, Sydney, with the Vitalities Lab.

FRG Zine – a collaborative exploration of feminist experiences in patriarchal and neo-liberal academia.

Coming works will explore queer digital archiving, and the future(s) of digital technologies.
