Frances St Press is a not-for-profit indie publisher of arts and social science cross-disciplinary inquiry, founded in 2018 and run by Ashleigh Watson.

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 are products of or inspired by social science research. Edition #4 of So Fi Zine launched in November 2018. Submissions for Edition #5 will open in early 2019.

Frances St Press is also the home of the new AKE Zine – an interdisciplinary zine of critical feminist arts/research from Affect, Knowledge and Embodiment: A Critical Feminist Arts/Research Masterclass.

Frances St Press is committed to providing a platform for openly accessible, innovative works of cross-disciplinary inquiry that creatively bridge the divide between art and social science. Coming works will explore knowledge and affect, neoliberalism, queerness, and cultural meaning in changing societies.
