Editorial Focus: 

We are Blunderbuss Magazine, a web magazine of arts, culture, and politics, an ordnance of fire and improvisation. What ties together these essays, stories, poems, photographs, comics, and other bits of aesthetic shrapnel is a common attitude of visceral humanism. We aim for earnest noise. We want to splash in the mud of lived experience, to battle for a radical empathy, and to provide a megaphone to howling assertions of human subjectivity.

Tips From the Editor: 

Blunderbuss Magazines welcomes unsolicited submissions. We are genre-flexible, so we’re comfortable with whatever medium you work in. Before you send us your work, however, we highly recommend you poke around the site and look at our founding manifesto to get a sense of our style & ethos. If you think we’re simpatico, please send us your completed work via our Submittable account (https://blunderbuss.submittable.com/submit) or query us, if you'd like to submit an essay or other nonfiction work. Please see our Submittable front page and our specific genre guidelines for more info.
