Editorial Focus

Conjunctions serves as a “living notebook” of contemporary literature, publishing fiction, poetry, drama, art, and essays that combine visionary imagination with formally innovative execution. Since 1981, Conjunctions has championed nearly 2,000 authors at every stage of their careers—from Nobel Prize Laureates to debut voices—and continues to connect fearless writers with adventurous readers.

Tips From the Editor

Published by Bard College, the biannual print issue appears every spring and fall. Most print issues center around a complex theme—such as exile, desire, the body, or climate change—and include both solicited and unsolicited work. All submissions are also considered for the online magazine, a weekly publication with a large and international audience.
