Editorial Focus

Half Mystic Journal, established in 2015, is an international and independent literary journal dedicated to the celebration of music in all its forms.

Tips From the Editor

We are interested in music in every form that takes. More specifically: we like pieces that make us rethink the issue’s theme, pieces that serve as incantations and invocations for melody. We look for work that defies genre, accounts for the unaccountable, wakes us up, burns us whole. We generally gravitate to the lyrical over the straight-talking and the surreal over the down-to-earth—but also, we like to be surprised.
