Editorial Focus

Published twice a year, Redivider welcomes fiction, nonfiction, graphic art, and poetry submissions from new, emerging, and established artists and writers. We strive to showcase the very best previously unpublished art and literature we can find; to actively engage the broader literary community, and to support and nurture that community in our pages and beyond; to welcome and serve historically underrepresented voices, including those marginalized due to class, gender, race, and sexuality; and, above all, to give good art and literature a good home.

Tips From the Editor

Redivider seeks pieces that captivate readers while complicating their worldviews; that recognize craft and genre conventions while working to disrupt them; that feature compelling characters, stories, and ideas simultaneous to revealing their flaws, fissures and seams. And while we appreciate work that challenges, we also love to be entertained. Humorous, colorful, and satirical pieces appeal to us too. We celebrate all things real and surreal, time-tested and transgressive, swaggerific and self-conscious. In our pages you’ll find the minimalist, the maximalist, and always—always—the in-betweenist. We also host two annual contests: the Beacon Street Prize each spring, and the Blurred Genre Contest in the fall.
