What we’re looking for:
By defining ourselves as barzakh—a space of crossings & connectivity between histories, articulations, & media—we hope to make Barzakh Magazine a site of inquiry & revitalization. We want your fiction, poetry, criticism, personal essays, translations, paintings, drawings, photographs—any work that pushes against complacent taxonomies & forges new paths.

Call for Chapters for an edited collection on the performativity of villainy and evil in literature and (literary) media
In 2018 Duke University Press reissued James Baldwin’s Little Man, Little Man: A Record of Childhood. In “A James Baldwin Book, Forgotten and Overlooked for Four Decades, Gets Another Life,” New York Times writer Alexandra Alter notes that in 1976 Little Man received lukewarm reviews: “critics didn’t know what to make of an experimental, enigmatic picture book that straddled the line between children’s and adult literature.” Alter posits that because of a changed social and political climate, Baldwin’s book will now have an easier time finding an audience.
