Journal Danse Macabre - An Online Literary Magazine

We present a monthly buffet of writers from across the literary spectrum. Our contributors hail from around the world; we also showcase kunst und kunstler whose neglected works suffer the temperamental vicissitudes of the literatti from beyond the grave. Our mission is to further expand the imaginative landscape of the literary web. Our central criterion is the overall creative effort deployed to transcend prevailing orthodoxies. The narrative contours of magical realism, world poetry, and Mitteleuropean kunst und kultur are especially appreciated.

Journal Dappled Things

Dappled Things is a Catholic literary magazine, and this raises the question of what Catholic literature is in the first place. Rather than give you a pat answer, we invite you as a contributor to help us explore that question. We especially value work that creatively engages Christianity’s rich tradition in art, thought, and practice, that is unflinchingly honest, that innovates in the light of tradition, and, in the words of J.F. Powers, has “one foot in this world and one in the next.”

Journal Dead Flowers: A Poetry Rag

Bohemian Pupil Press' Poetry Rag takes its name from the Rolling Stones’ song on the 1971 album Sticky Fingers. This song is emblamatic of a quintessential irreverance: it portrays a most elegant “Fuck You.” Please, do not interpret this as meaning that Dead Flowers is a platform for sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll. Dead Flowers is an extension of Bohemian Pupil Press’ tagline and motive: “Publishing for the Clear-Sighted Imbiber.” Please visit our About This Rag page to discover more.
