Journal 3Elements Review

WHO WE ARE: 3Elements Literary Review has a presence in Chicago, IL, as well as Des Moines, IA. We publish fiction, nonfiction, poetry, art, and photography. Each issue begins with the posting of three elements, and ends with a journal filled with the imaginative ways in which each writer and artist transformed those elements. We exist to inspire creativity. We want contributors to our journal to have fun seeing each element through a different lens. We, as well as our readers, thoroughly enjoy the journey on which each piece takes us, as no one story or poem is ever the same.

Journal 580 Split

TRANSCENDENCE. Beyond. Beyond the physical. Beyond normal. Beyond what’s believed possible. Beyond even our conception of reality. This is the work of the Artist. Ever striving to see the world from outside the world to stretch the bounds of what one is capable of. And we are interested in this stretching… We seek the places, the spaces, the moments that exist at once everywhere, unknown and uncharted. Everything beyond and in between. Let the power of your imagination be your guide. We’re interested in stories, essays, and poems that speak to this idea of Transcendence.
