Our Mission is to be an equitable, conscious publishing house. Why wait for validation, we ask? With books and art in our minds, we wanted to redefine access to publishing. If we felt like this then we knew other creators must feel the same way. We want to put creative ownership back into the hands of those who dream of fantastical new worlds, who think in verse, and who draw when holding a pen.
Why are we called ‘Bee’ Infinite?
Bees are communal creatures, vital to the pollination process. They are some of the most powerful creators and collaborators on the planet, sharing an infinite and sweet final product with the world.
Like bees and pollination, knowledge and information are vital to our way of life. Artists and creators make the world go round and we need their voices. Through writers of diverse backgrounds and identities, we can create new, equitable worlds and ways of being. Books and other literary works are the safe havens for thought and creation!
