Why The Vault?

The Vault is published by With/out Pretend, an independent literary press founded in 2015 with the mission to produce, promote and distribute work by emerging women-identifying writers and artists.

Publishing printed matter can be very expensive, especially when you want to maintain suppliers who are local and values-aligned. We wanted to make more work, more often, and continue to collaborate with a community of fresh, unique voices. 

For the price of one almond latte per month, you'll have access to all our stories for a year and receive exclusive gifts in the mail.

By supporting The Vault you’re championing the kind of art you want to see in the world — stories that are honest, relatable, and fiercely uncensored.

 

What you get

 
 
 

Intimate stories by emerging women-identifying writers. A deep sense of pride that you're part of a community that holds space for women to share their untold experiences. Beautiful art created by talented visual artists, specifically for these stories.
