Two Words For is a magazine of inspirations, publishing work that clearly identifies who its "after," or in response to. We seek writing and art from those acknowledging the influence of the past, while seeking to overcome it in the present. Work that steps beyond the initial referencing of names in order to advance the literary and artistic craft in new directions.
