Editorial Focus

Versal, the literary & arts journal out of Amsterdam, seeks work that is urgent, involved, and unexpected. A publication celebrating translocal intersections and cross-cultural dialogue, Versal is internationally renowned for the quality of work published by up-and-coming as well as established writers, and for its strong attention to design and production values. Versal has been featured many times in Poets & Writers Magazine, including being named among the "top indie innovators" (November/December 2010).

Tips From the Editor

We especially encourage works from outside of the US, works that blend genre, works in translation, works from writers and artists of color, works from writers and artists with disabilities, and works from writers and artists of marginalized orientations, backgrounds, and gender identities.
