Editorial Focus

The Gravity of the Thing is an independent magazine dedicated to innovative and defamiliarized creative writing. Their ongoing goal is to publish work that defamiliarizes literary forms, writing that estranges to achieve a renewed sense of discovery.

Tips From the Editor

We accept defamilarized fiction, nonfiction, and poetry, and we are especially interested in reading cross-genre, multimedia, collaborative, and translated works. Please visit before submitting, as your writing should reflect the goals of the journal.
