Editorial Focus

Agni sees literature and the arts as part of a broad, ongoing cultural conversation that every society needs to remain vibrant and alive. They look for “the honest voice, the idiosyncratic signature, experimental where necessary but not willfully so. Writing that grows from a vision, a perspective, and a passion will interest us, regardless of structure or approach.”
