midnight & indigo is a publisher and collective that provides space for Black women writers to share their narratives with the world. With an emphasis on short fiction, essay writing, classes and writing workshops, we exist to make a meaningful contribution to the rich Black literary tradition while providing a platform to elevate our voices. In addition to our bi-annual print publication, we publish online. We are Black and woman-owned.
We're launching our online writing studio in January 2022! Look out for classes on short story writing, craft, novel development, discussions of works by Black and POC writers, and more. Designed especially for you!
Our tri-annual lit mag is dedicated to short stories and narrative essays written by Black women writers. To date, issues feature works by 80+ emerging and established storytellers across the U.S., Africa, Europe, Canada, and Australia.
Whether you are a writer, author, artist, or content creator, our stories are the continuation of the tradition carried for generations. Celebrate your art with our exclusive tote bags.

No woman has ever written enough.”
― bell hooks
