Editorial Focus

A visitant is a visitor from another realm—a specter, a psychopomp, or a transitory creature, like a pilgrim or bird. Visitants pop up throughout literature as ghosts, as fits of madness, and as omens. In nature, a visitant takes on a different meaning: a migratory bird that has come to a place temporarily; a cicada that rises from the soil every seventeen years. Visitant creates a space where you and your temporary visitors—your stories, your words—might rest, grow stronger, and be shared. Send your work!
