Editorial Focus

Arkana is the journal of mysteries and marginalized voices. It seeks and fosters a sense of shared wonder by publishing inclusive art that asks questions, explores mystery, and works to make visible the marginalized, the overlooked, and those whose voices have been silenced.

Tips From the Editor

Send us polished, thought-provoking literary work that follows our guidelines, using our Submittable page. We value work that uses voices we haven't heard before or haven't heard from enough, work that asks tough questions about the world and about what it means to be human, and work that blurs the boundaries of genre. We accept work from writers with MFA degrees and writers still in high school, writers from our home base in Arkansas to writers from the universe at large.
