“The Library is a sphere whose exact center is any hexagon and whose circumference is unattainable,” states Jorge Luis Borges in his tale of sacred geometry and information science, The Library of Babel. It may be said that we take as our starting point this exact center, focusing arbitrarily yet intently on any hexagon which presents itself to our mundane perceptions, and expanding upon the disorientation extracted therefrom until nothing is left of language but its abstract scaffolding...

New authors make up 10% or less of each issue, but don't let that discourage you. We are interested in passionate new voices whose words and ideas hit us in the gut and leave us thinking about their work days after reading.

West Trade Review strives to put forth the best contemporary poetry, fiction, artwork, and photography and publishes a mix of established and up and coming writers. Our mission is to perpetuate the work of artists both well known and yet-to-be-known, simultaneously enriching our world through the written word and visual arts. We strive to reflect diversity in style, content and perspective throughout prose, poetry, photography and other artwork. Our goal is to simply present to you the best art possible by both emerging and established creative minds.

 

We embrace diversity and like works that are edgy and affect us intellectually and emotionally.   

We want poems and stories that make the reader think and feel, work that humbles us with its joy, humor, embarrassment, anger, hope, grief, or all of the above. We gravitate toward exquisitely crafted writing that has something important to teach us--something that readers really need to know, but might not have understood this was a need until the last word of the work.  Quality of writing, style, and characterization are important to us.

Please don't send us poems that rhyme, slam-style works, or dogmatically religious pieces.

Have a question abour our journal?  Don't hesitate to ask.

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 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."

Our scope is wide, but in general we are looking for work that explores the nexus between humanity, spirituality, and life experience. We do not deny the validity of the basic categories of physics, biology, psychology, and the other sciences: we claim only that human beings cannot be fully understood in terms of them. Thus, art.

We want your fiction, poetry, art, criticism—you name it—that pushes against complacent taxonomies and finds itself well off the beaten path. We define ourselves as an “isthmus,” a space of crossings and connectivity, between histories, articulations, media—making of these frontiers a site of play and revitalization.
