Narrative Northeast

NN is a literary and arts magazine dedicated to diverse voices and visions, to creating a platform for writers who actually have something to say. With our editorial picks, we’re hoping to help to break down or mitigate the insistent voice of mono-culture. NN is looking for diverse, playful, edgy, socially aware voices, feminist, LBGT, and straight. However, any topic or theme is acceptable for NN, as we see the arts in general as a powerful catalyst for change.
