Our Mission

Heartspark Press is a volunteer-led, trans-centered 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to the liberation of  transgender girls, transgender women, and CAMAB (coercively* assigned-male-at-birth) non-binary people. We nurture and publish books, anthologies, and short stories made by and for the (C)AMAB trans and non-binary community. Our programming includes an online audio and video storytelling archive, workshops centered on trans writers of color, weekly community events, and quarterly performances featuring local performers and national artists. 

The central tenet of Heartspark Press is accessibility; everyone can access our books regardless of financial status. All of our books can be downloaded as pay-what-you-can PDFs. and we also offer traditional books in print at booksellers (including Amazon.com) across the globe. We also run the (C)AMAB Trans Storytelling Project, an ever-growing archive of stories by and for girls and people like us. This archive is available to stream for free on multiple platforms: our YouTube channel,  heartspark.bandcamp.com and Archive.org. All proceeds from our work goes directly into creating new publications by and for our trans and non-binary communities.

Every day, (C)AMAB trans and non-binary lives are constantly threatened by a violent, cissexist society that doesn’t believe we have the right to exist. When you support Heartspark Press, you are standing up for the voices of all transgender girls, women, and (C)AMAB non-binary folks across the entire planet. You are screaming that our voices are important and that our lives are worth fighting for. This is a rare opportunity to help us make this world safer for everyone struggling to get free of the gender binary.

Join us in lifting the voices of (C)AMAB trans and non-binary people everywhere.
