Editorial Focus

Poor Yorick Literary Journal is a free, online literary journal of the Master of Fine Arts Program in Creative and Professional Writing at Western Connecticut State University.

Tips From the Editor

Poor Yorick brings back into light the skeletons hidden in our cultural closets.  The free, online journal welcomes writing and other creative productions about lost objects and images of material culture: sculptures and paintings in the back rooms of museums or in hidden corners of public spaces; murals forgotten in plain view; lost photographic archives and restored films; newly discovered letters or manuscripts; knickknacks in attics; oddities and curiosities in misbegotten sideshows; forgotten stories that remind us of pasts that we cannot afford to forget.
