Founded in 2017, Francis publishes an online magazine (rooms), as well as print anthologies and chapbooks (houses).
We took a bit of an unplanned break during Covid, but are getting back into it! Rooms will now be published twice annually. After we get through all of our current House submissions (thank you for your patience!), we're going to reassess how we handle that process.
