the museum of americana is an online literary review dedicated to fiction, poetry, nonfiction, photography, music, and artwork that revives or repurposes the old, the dying, the forgotten, or the almost entirely unknown aspects of Americana. It is published purely out of a fascination with the big, weird, wildly contradictory collage that is our nation’s cultural history. Issues appear three times a year, in the winter, summer, and fall.

We seek work that engages or repurposes America's complex cultural history—original & unpublished fiction, nonfiction, poetry, book/chapbook reviews, interviews, music, photography, & art. Give us fiction that dramatizes old folk songs or steals their characters—give us love poetry with language cribbed from The Federalist Papers. Recent features: fiction on the 2008 financial crisis via Bartleby the Scrivener; essay on the family legacy of tomato-growing, and a personal essay on Annie Ross and "Twisted."

Larry Fike

The Nebraska Review published a poem of mine in the 1980s. I was ecstatic. Shortly thereafter, The Christian Science Monitor published an op-ed I wrote titled, "Questioning Spike Lee." Then came graduate school, and the publication of a critical book review. Writing the review, I became self-conscious of employing techniques that I had acquired in my philosophy Ph.D. program. In a sense, the subjective disappointment of that writing assignment explains the fact that I am taking the time to write this at all.

I want to write myself out onto the world in a manner that forges a connection between my words and my thoughts, but also a connection between my thoughts and my readers. I find this baffling, sometimes believing that I am attempting something akin to performing open-heart surgery with a violin. I did self-publish a memoir, written while using alcohol as anesthesia, with predictable results. (I lost a child custody case in which the book was accepted as an exhibit, while my sober testimony was largely ignored.) Poetry has enabled me to come closest to realizing my writing goal, and sometimes songwriting, but I am back on the memoir horse en route to an anticipated philosophical oasis. Humbled, I'm turning in my Lone Ranger badge and looking for a likeminded, singleness-of-purpose, posse.

We are dedicated solely to novel excerpts. These pieces should feel like they come from novels we want to read—they may pop us into the action and leave us hanging at the end. Each issue includes 6 winning excerpts from our two annual contests (January to February, and October to November).

Each issue has a guest judge. Look at their novel(s) for an idea of styles they may be most interested in, but remember that we also push our judges to look at all genres and styles!

Yo, although i have a serious side for good books, my funny bones (left and right) prefer verse that is light; prose that's humorous:  So, chums, may there be some groups that get a chuckle or two out of this sentence - gadzooks, groupies!

"I decided some years ago that I wanted to create a space for people taking on the struggle, a venue to give those writers and artists a truly fair shot at publication and the chance to be seen, read, and recognized—no connections, no solicitations, and only blind reading. Here, the quality of work is all that matters, not who you know or where you come from or what you've already accomplished. A fair chance and an open hand for everyone—the underdogs, the in-betweeners, and the already established." —Jonathan Starke, Editor
