Blakelight is a celebration and lamentation of the city, of human beauty lost to us. It is the acceptance that both ugly and beautiful make-up that which is human. The recognition of diversity and tolerance. At the heart of Blake’s symbolism was the city. The city with its revolutions, wars and woes. The urban, as a source of a new divinity and romanticism. Ginsberg in his Blake-light tragedy, his hallucinations and visions saw how the cosmopolitan- the real- can be an endless source of poetic inspiration.

We, at Blakelight, welcome all poetry and fiction submissions. There are no themes and no biases. We want the best of your imagination and are open to experimental, creative and provocative work. Whether you want to write a lyric or a post-modern masterpiece, we here at Blakelight, will assess your piece solely on its artistic value. We will only assess your work according to a beauty that will not be lost to us.

Each issue of COG is a curiously constructed curation offered up by the students of Cogswell College. COG's writers thrill with skillfully wrought and cohesive narratives; insight and intensity; imagery and attitude - alternating nimbly between closely examined moments, characters or nuances and larger human themes. COG is not a venue for student work; rather, as of March 2018, COG had received submissions from writers working in 24 countries beyond the U.S.

In addition to publishing traditional text-based work, check out Cogitate - our audio broadcast - and the video series. We consider submissions in both categories, as well as cover art submissions.

We are a nonprofit literary organization supporting writers at all stages of their careers. Although we welcome experimental or unusual approaches to literature, our goal is to promote finely crafted work with an expressive and meaningful voice. We pay our contributors upon publication because we feel that too much art is taken for granted. We encourage submissions from under-served communities.

Please carefully adhere to our submission guidelines.
