Editorial Focus

TAYO cultivates emerging poetry and prose, publishing writing that knifes, lifts, and strikes at the emotive truth of all things lost and adrift. We accept work without regard to ethnicity or nationality* (all are welcomed to submit), and we're looking for pieces that slice into the phantasmagoria of the oppressed, marginalized, post-colonized, and diasporic life. We are an annual print, quarterly online and multimedia platform for storytelling. ISSN PRINT: 2164-0270 ISSN ONLINE: 2164-0289

Tips From the Editor

* We're keeping up our open policy of accepting work without regard to ethnicity/nationality. * Writing that touches on the topics of diaspora, location, identity: intersections of culture/language/sex/gender, movement/immigration; grief, emotion, trauma in relation to the aforementioned topics. * Interesting and vivid language, narrative voice, style, multi-layered, poetics.
