Editorial Focus

The Momentist is looking for fiction (under 7,000 words), poetry, critical essays, and translations.

The journal name comes from something once said by Harold Brodkey: “The reader in his or her life has more access to the real than the author does, which counters the author's more practised access to language. This is Momentism.” The editors look for writing that takes up this relationship, that hazards being misunderstood. This doesn’t necessarily only mean experimental writing. They will consider writing of all styles.

Tips From the Editor

For the third issue, we’re particularly interested in essay/criticism and translation proposals, though we will consider submissions of all kinds.
