Anima is a journal for contemporary poems which dare to look beyond the materialist paradigm of mainstream western culture. We offer the reader thoughtful and intelligent writing which, in one way or another, avoids taking for granted the primacy of the everyday world of senses and reason. Poems of metaphysics, gnosis and symbolism, of depth psychology or transcendence — all these and more are welcome in our pages.
Tips From the Editor
Please ensure your work fits with the intentions of the magazine before submitting! We publish both free and formal poems, and are particularly interested in work that brings a fresh and contemporary edge to traditional forms. Long poems will be considered, as will translations. If you think it would be helpful to include a few sentences about the pieces you have submitted to help the reader orientate themselves in your world, we would encourage you to do so. All submissions must be made online through our website.
