About Moss Puppy Magazine

Moss Puppy Magazine is an independent literary magazine founded in July 2021 by Melissa Martini. 


Our goal as a literary magazine is to feature and share literature that defies norms, challenges conventions, and embraces the unsettlingly beautiful and oddly innovative.


We are a platform for emerging writers and artists to share their unique perspectives and voices, with a commitment to embracing and supporting diverse voices.


Our core values guide everything we do, shaping our vision and ensuring that we provide a literary haven that nurtures creativity, fosters community, and amplifies marginalized voices.
