Literary Laundry

We believe that literature should strive to re-conceptualize the world and render with nuance its complexities. Literary work must evolve the poignancy with which the reader experiences life. Unfortunately, much contemporary literature, galvanized by the perverted specter of “make it new,” has prioritized novelty over potency. At best, such literature conveys an attitude in place of the intellectual wonder that underlies meaningful writing. We regard this trend as a problem and have created Literary Laundry in order to fix it.

Los Angeles Review

The Los Angeles Review, established in 2003, is the voice of Los 
Angeles, and the voice of the nation. Perhaps from this place 
something can emerge that speaks to the writer or singer or dancer or 
wild person in all of us, something disturbing, something alive, 
something of the possibility of what it could be to be human in the 
21st century.

MadHat Lit

We’re particularly interested in risky, thematically broad (i.e., saying something about the world and its creatures), psychologically and philosophically sophisticated works. Humor, satire, irony, magical realism and surrealism are welcome. We look for originality, surprise, intellectual and emotional strength, lyricism and rhythm. We love writers who stretch their imaginations to the limits and challenge conventional notions of reality and style; we care little for categories. We also adore collaborative ventures, between/among writers, visual artists, and composers.
