Editorial Focus

the museum of americana is an online literary review dedicated to fiction, poetry, nonfiction, photography, music, and artwork that revives or repurposes the old, the dying, the forgotten, or the almost entirely unknown aspects of Americana. It is published purely out of a fascination with the big, weird, wildly contradictory collage that is our nation’s cultural history. Issues appear three times a year, in the winter, summer, and fall.

Tips From the Editor

We seek work that engages or repurposes America's complex cultural history—original & unpublished fiction, nonfiction, poetry, book/chapbook reviews, interviews, music, photography, & art. Give us fiction that dramatizes old folk songs or steals their characters—give us love poetry with language cribbed from The Federalist Papers. Recent features include Lillian Howan's "The American House" in our landmark Issue 25, Cass Francis' essay "Queer Highways" in our Queering Americana issue, and "Supermarket Sweep, 1994", poetry by Jeffrey Hecker in our new weekly feature, Americana Stories.
