Journal Your Impossible Voice

Your Impossible Voice is looking for quality works of prose and poetry. We are interested in writing from around the world. Writing that is devious and feisty. We are not bored and prefer not to be. We like urgency, innovation, intelligence, risk. We’re interested in what language can do and in challenging our own preconceptions. We love lucid dreams, blurred boundaries, formal play, and stories we’ve never heard. Send us work that frustrates our ideas of beauty and illuminates surreal new intersections. Ignite our understanding of form.
