Box of Jars

Box of Jars is a collection of words, music, art, and ideas. A space that promotes Auden's notion that poetry is 'memorable speech.' We could extend the idea to say that music is memorable sound, and painting is memorable imagery, and so forth. The three basic tenets we want to uphold are: sincerity, integrity, illumination. The work should be deeply felt and deeply considered; the form of each piece should be purposeful; the experience of each piece should linger.

We are an intersection where truth-telling prose, poetry, artwork, and interviews with storytellers in various media (e.g., sculpture, costume design, cgi, memoir), can converge to be enjoyed by readers and writers deeply engaged with the culture, though not necessarily through an academic lens. Your smart best friend should enjoy Broad Street as much as your theory-steeped professorial colleagues.

Cardinal Sins

Our focus is on anything that moves us. We desire well-written poetry, flash fiction, fiction, and creative non-fiction that has a brain and a heart. We are not looking for dripping over-sentimentality. But often, even in the most high-brow of works, there is an identifiable pulse of energy and emotion. Cardinal Sins is not beholden by any specific aesthetic. Our only litmus test is that the work is good. Cardinal Sins is trying to push the boundaries of traditional lit mags. We are producing an audio version of our journal and will be placing the journal on the Kindle and Nook stores.
