ABOUT US

Abandon Journal exists to showcase writing and artwork that has been created with abandon.

That term is free to be interpreted liberally, but ideally it is the kind of work that takes risks, created in a space wherein the artist doesn’t care what anyone else thinks or what everyone else is doing. We’re open to hybrid work, genre, visual art, and more.

Each issue we showcase work that “abandons form,” and every other issue will be a variation on a theme of abandon.

We are writers, too, and we are committed to paying our contributors–at least a modest honorarium, until we’re able to pay more–and never charging a fee for general submissions.

Abandon Journal is a labor of love manufactured in Austin, Texas.
