Editorial Focus

Action, Spectacle is a biannual magazine based in Louisville, Kentucky, and Brooklyn. The magazine exists at the intersection of the socio-political, the cultural, and the arts—a public space for discussion and engagement. It puts a spectrum of voices in conversation online by publishing art, comics, commentary, fiction, interviews, memoir, music, poetry, and reportage.

Tips From the Editor

We read previously unpublished work in English year-round. Simultaneous and unsolicited submissions are encouraged. We employ the broadest possible aesthetic when we read. We publish poetry, flash fiction, short fiction, comics, interviews, essays, reviews, as well as some static graphic images. Hybrid and collaborative work, as well as translations are welcome.
