Literary Magazine Ideas


A literary magazine with pieces written by planes in the sky. Each city gets a flash fiction/poem. First country up: Syria.


A literary magazine concerned with the music of the spheres and the painstaking reconstruction of the anatomy of cryptozoological creatures.


A literary magazine printed on the backs of manatees, for circulation around the wetlands of West Africa and the Gulf of Mexico.


A literary magazine featuring stories by cats. That is, stories created by cats walking across keyboards (or their muddy pawprints on paper). Large audience/subs anticipated. Quality control must be rigorous.


A literary magazine made of sand.


A literary magazine about gender, written on things that, in German, are described in the neutral (rather than as male or female). Excepted: ‘girl’ (das mädchen), which is a neutral noun. Let’s not scribble on girls more than we do already.


A literary magazine written in ichor.


A literary magazine written by dead people (contacted through a medium). Dead people have great senses of humour.


A literary magazine that cries in pain when you turn the pages.


A literary magazine illicitly distributed in the rare books section of certain libraries (TBA) and made of old papyrus stolen from the British Museum. Handling with gloves recommended.


A literary magazine containing only shadows, sown on. A literary magazine written by flying children/pagan gods.


A literary magazine that is louder than a war.


A literary magazine made of coffee fumes.


A literary magazine that explains you to yourself, Library of Babel style, useful for OK Cupid profiles, etc.
