Editorial Focus

Apogee is a journal of literature and art that encourages the thoughtful exploration of identity and its intersections, including but not limited to: race, gender, sexuality, class, and ability. The magazine features fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and visual art. Its purpose is threefold: to publish fresh work that interrogates the aesthetic and political status quo; to provide a platform for underrepresented voices, prioritizing artists and writers of color; to model more radical conversations and practices regarding equity and publishing.

Tips From the Editor

We often receive work from overrepresented perspectives whose primary goal is to interrogate its privilege or come to terms with the “other.” Please note: this is not the work we seek to elevate at Apogee. We look for work that centers the experience of marginalized perspectives. We want to foster work that addresses the politics of identity, such as migration, diaspora, multiculturalism, privilege, hierarchy, oppression, though these themes are not a requirement for publication.
