Editorial Focus

SORTES is an ongoing collection of stories, poems, songs, and illustrations. They have neither theme nor scene. 10 authors per issue and four issues per year, they publish both the sufficiently strange and insufficiently boring: swart stories, hoity poetry, oddball literary feats, beatnik travelogues, pulp, antibiography, experimental sentimentalism, and sideways photography. They also host readings, perform old time radio performances, and pull off other beloved gimmicks.

Tips From the Editor

SORTES considers unsolicited submissions of poetry, prose, illustration, music, videos, and anything else you think may fit our format and feel—and very often material that doesn’t. Feel free to poke at us: we’d love to find a way to publish dance, sculpture, puzzles, and other unliterary modalities.
