GENERATIONS Literary Magazine publishes the original works and ideas of both emerging and established artists in an effort to encourage conversations across the generational gaps. The gaps can come from almost anywhere—misunderstandings, lack of communication, apathy, cultural differences, time, access, or distance. To that end, we print page and stage poetry, short fiction, personal narratives, interviews, and visual art from every generation in hopes of filling the gaps with positive discussion and interaction across the age divide. With special thematic issues, we aim to feature the diverse voices of our global community and to promote cultural exchange and inter-generational dialogue.
Reading Period: October 1 – November 30
The print journal is comprised of both solicited work and submissions. We encourage and welcome submissions of poetry, short fiction, creative non-fiction, and artwork from writers and artists who represent all generations. Let us hear your take on our theme.
