Editorial Focus

The Adroit Journal is looking for work that’s bizarre, authentic, subtle, outrageous, indefinable, raw, paradoxical.

Tips From the Editor

Please note that we accept simultaneous submissions (and appreciate acknowledgement of such submissions), but do not accept reprints/previously published work. Please include a third-person bio in your cover letter. We’ve got our eyes on the horizon. Send us writing that lives just between the land and the sky. For examples of the work we tend to publish, please consult our current issue and online archives.
