American Chordata is a biannual magazine of bright voices in fiction, nonfiction essay, and poetry, as well as art and photography. We are founded on the belief that a good literary magazine can celebrate sophisticated design and earnest expression on the same 5.5 by 8.5 page.
Tips From the Editor
American Chordata seeks to publish short works of original fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and translation. There are no formal world limits or stylistic constraints. We're looking for work that is brave, illuminating, and emotionally detailed.
