Editorial Focus: 

Apogee is an independent literary journal, founded by writers in Columbia University’s M.F.A. Writing Program in 2011. We currently publish an annual issue that features fiction, creative nonfiction and poetry by writers of color, as well as non-hegemonic perspectives on racial, social and political issues by writers of all races. Our dual purpose is to celebrate writers on the periphery who express their creativity, interests and struggles, and to provide a platform for all writers to thoughtfully engage with issues of race and cultural diversity.

Tips From the Editor: 

Prose less than 5000 words. No more than 3 poems per submitter. Submit to us @ apogeejournal.submittable.com
