The JAR Collective stands in the space of possibility between self-published indie author and micro press. Comprised of Jodi Cleghorn, Adam Byatt and Rus VanWestervelt, the collective harnesses the individual and collaborative passions, skill-sets and experience of the founding members to create an innovative publishing platform. The collective consolidates more than a decade of creative synergy and shared relationships from author-editor and author-author to creative insurgents and catalysts, and a myriad of other transitory and permanent relationships between.
Here you will not find work curated under a shared genre or form. Here you will find work curated and offered under a shared passion for transformative stories in a kaleidescope of forms. You can expect to find mainstream books offered alongside metaphysical digital serials, verse novels in chapbook form, black-out poetry, sci-fi constellation narratives, as solo and joint endeavours.
There are no limits here – no rules – and we invite you to join us in our explorations of the boundaries of narrative and shared literary adventures.
Please note, the Collective is not open to public submissions.
