Journal AGNI

We see literature and the arts as part of a broad, ongoing cultural conversation that every society needs to remain vibrant and alive. We look for the honest voice, the idiosyncratic signature, experimental where necessary but not willfully so. Writing that grows from a vision, a perspective, and a passion will interest us, regardless of structure or approach.

Airplane Reading is a site that features nonfiction writing about air travel.

New pieces are posted daily, and each week we select one to feature. We welcome nonfiction submissions (up to 1000 words) that are related to air travel. These might include personal stories, anecdotes, observations, recollections, speculations, insights, etc.
