Journal Storyacious

Our focus is on imaginative and entertaining storytelling through diverse media, blurring the lines between disciplines and genres: books, music, movies, TV, artwork, photography, etc. We welcome original stories (fiction, non-fiction, poetry) with unusual, eclectic themes, new and fresh perspectives and demonstrating a command of the chosen medium, whether words, images or sounds. Style is just as important as content, voice and form. We’re also very keen on multi-cultural narratives from various parts of the world (in English).
