Moss is a literary journal of writing from the Pacific Northwest. Published annually, Moss is dedicated to exploring the intersection of place and creative expression, while exposing the region’s outstanding writers to a broad audience of readers, critics, and publishers. Since its debut issue in the summer of 2014, Moss has received praise for its sharp design, strong editorial hand, and its commitment to supporting new and emerging writers.

Moss was founded by Alex Davis-Lawrence, a filmmaker and creative producer based in Los Angeles, and Connor Guy, a book editor based in New York City. Both were born and raised in Seattle.

Moss is represented for Film/TV by Alexandra Kordas at 42 Management & Productions.
