We're pleased to announce our first ever themed issue and our first ever guest editor. Learn more about the Post-Traumatic issue and Benjamin Reed here.
Arcadia is excited to announce our first poetry chapbook competition. We are seeking any and all sorts of poetry. If you've got a chapbook ready and it's between 15 and 30 pages, send it our way. The contest will be open between May 1 and August 15th. Submissions can be made through at our Submittable page, here.
Volume 6 has arrived! Inside, you'll find Arcadia Magazine's inaugural short story contest winner, Ravsten Cottle, some riveting neo-noir fiction from Richard Thomas, and a feature on the eco-sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor. Order your copy here.
In celebration of National Poetry Month, tweet us your poems at @ArcadiaLitMag in 140 characters or less. We'll retweet, and the favorite wins a copy of our Spring 2013 issue. Enter as often as you like in the month of April.
Thank you to everyone who came out and celebrated the launch of Volume 5 with us! We had a blast and met some really great new friends and got to see some familiar faces. For those of you who were unable to make it out, don't fret! You can still order a copy right here!
Got an essay on how not to write a sex scene like Updike? On how to avoid the trappings of mid-afternoon soap opera conflict? Or that proves E. M. Forster knew nothing about character? We want to read it. Click here to submit.
Join us at the 51st Street Speakeasy May 12th, 2012, at 8 PM for our Volume 4 Launch Party! Pick up Volume 4 on the cheap, meet the editors, and hear a reading by contributing author Kit Givan.
Check out The Committee Room where contributing author Benjamin Reed's story "King of the Apes" (found here) has been selected as story of the month for April. Congratulations, Benjamin! There you'll find a great interview with Benjamin plus all things of the literary world, "including writing, reading, publishing, bookselling, literacy, and librarianship."
Arcadia is not that literary journal that pumps out the same magazine issue after issue. We do not ascribe to a certain aesthetic, nor do we expect that you do. We want you, our readers, to be awed, to be surprised, but, most of all, to fall in love with the work found in our pages and at our website.
Our website will be updated regularly with original content from writers, artists, filmmakers, comedians, and others whom you may not recognize but whom you should get to know, for free. To get our full content, though, subscribe to our print edition.
Thanks for reading,
