Poor Yorick: A Journal of Rediscovered Objects brings back into light the skeletons hidden in our cultural closets. The free online journal welcomes writing and other creative productions about lost objects and images of material culture: sculptures and paintings in the back rooms of museums or in dusty corners of public spaces; murals forgotten in plain view; lost photographic archives and restored films; newly discovered letters or manuscripts; knickknacks in attics; oddities and curiosities in misbegotten sideshows; forgotten stories that remind us of pasts that we cannot afford to forget.
Poor Yorick invites submissions in every literary genre and any electronically reproducible visual or audio medium. To submit, click on the category below that best describes your submission. We charge a $3 reading fee, which is about what you'd pay in postage if you were to mail your submissions to a literary journal. It helps us cover costs associated with Poor Yorick's website and also goes toward our Editor's Prize for the year's best work! Note that you should only be charged once for up to five submissions per genre. Let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org if you run into any problems.
