Muse /A Journal (myoo-zay) seeks to curate a museum-esque experience by pairing the best in lyric essays, poetry, and experimental cross-genre verse. We seek to publish meaningful poetry that affects the reader in a way which expands our understanding of life, the natural world, and human nature. 

Muse /A Journal (myoo-zay) seeks lyrical, playful, moving, linguistically-inventive, unique, experimental, moving, honest, diction-sensitive, perhaps collaborative, economical, attentive, vested, clever, touching, REAL work. If this describes your work in any way, we’d love to see it.

The Beautiful Losers are the people that live at the margins. The ones that dare to try, to live, to sing. The ones that aren’t afraid of failure, that pursue the beauty of it all. The ones that aren’t rebels, special, normal, alternative, crazy, underdogs, established; the only thing that they want is to find, once again, that perfect moment. This is a place where real literature happens; think of it as a double shot on the rocks, in a world of whiskey neats.

Words Apart is a literary magazine dedicated to social justice issues. We highlight frequently overlooked issues—political, social, or cultural—affect humankind. Our authorship and readership span the globe, and include emerging writers, as well as pieces from and interviews with more established artists. We encourage you to use art—written and visual—to explore the ways that discourse can shape the world and change it for the better.

We welcome any subject matter, but give priority to work that focuses on social justice or marginalized perspectives. We are accepting unpublished fiction, poetry, essays, investigative journalism, interviews, photography, (photos of) artwork, recordings of slam poetry, and short films. Work that doesn't relate to our theme is welcome. Please review the guidelines on our website for more information.
