Frances St Press is an indie publisher run by Ash Watson since 2017. 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.

Frances St Press is the home of:

So Fi Zine – 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.

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 about how we experience algorithms in everyday life.

FRG Zine – a collaborative exploration of feminist experiences in patriarchal and neo-liberal academia from TASA’s Families and Relationships thematic group.

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