Broad Street Magazine
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, January 11, 2018

Dare to push yourself in new ways. We are a truly interdisciplinary journal published primarily in print but with a strong web presence.  We want beautifully crafted, previously unpublished non-fiction narratives: reflective essays, memoirs, experimental truth-telling, poetry, prose poetry, photo essays, original artwork, and interviews. We hope to create an engaging intersection where writing, poetry, and artwork can converge in one space to be enjoyed by readers and writers deeply engaged with the culture, though not through an academic lens.  Your smart best friend should enjoy Broad Street as much as your theory-steeped professor.  Think NPR.  Think New Yorker.  Think Broad Street.
