The Lark firmly believes that the ubiquity of the internet is not a reason to accept diminished quality in publications or to skip supporting contributors. We seek to publish what’s risky, critical, musical, philosophical, playful, experimental, sexy, or deadly serious. Sometimes we publish the bells and blossoms, and sometimes we publish the dark underbelly.
Above all, we seek to be moved.
We recommend that you look through our previous issues to get a sense of the Lark. Our guidelines are left intentionally expansive, but we take craft seriously and are drawn to work that feels honest in some way.
