Each issue of Menagerie Magazine is a curated exhibit of poems, fictions, and hybrid works that deserve the close attention of a small stage. Like a Joseph Cornell shadow box, we bring together a mixture of things found and made, memories and discoveries, outcast and beloved. Hybrid and uncategorizable pieces are of interest, as are the unwieldy, the absurd, the grotesque. In short: if you've written something and don't know what to call it, we want to see it. Our menagerie is unending and contains all kinds of curios.
