Editorial Focus

Inverted Syntax seeks to publish unorthodox approaches to form and aesthetics. Editors prefer work that is nongenre, those that straddle multiple categories. Send memorable, haunting approaches to art and language that turn readers inside out and convey novel insights into the human experience. 

Tips From the Editor

Reading Inverted Syntax print issues and online Fissured Tongue Volumes are the best way to get a sense of what the journal is looking for.
