American Athenaeum Cover

American Athenaeum is a cultural magazine that explores the world of words like a museum, by offering a view of the past, right up to the present. We consider this journal to be a museum of artistic endeavors filled with cultural appreciation and stories that not only teach, but demonstrate the frailty of the human condition.

Amethyst Arsenic Cover

Amethyst Arsenic was founded in 2011 to publish the best poetry and art to the widest possible audience. We pay for accepted work and seek to nominate poems for awards. We are open to all forms of poetry from new and established voices. We have a goal to publish at least twice a year, as well as create paid opportunities for guest editors. I try to combine editors from both the slam and academic literary community. Through the journal, I sponsor and support programs like the National Poetry Slam, MassLeap, and MassPoetry.

Unrorean Cover

Begun as an answer to Aurorean editor Cynthia Brackett-Vincent’s frequent quandary, “I wish this fit the Aurorean!”, the Unrorean publishes poems that are too long, too dark or too experimental for the Aurorean’s format. Its tagline: “$2 each U.S. (less than a cup of gourmet coffee & more satisfying). One-year subscription {2 issues} $4 U.S. (much more satisfying than just one issue!). There are no formal guidelines or deadlines, & we do not send proofs. Work sent solely to the Unrorean is not acknowledged (but we promise to take good care of your poems)."
