Obra/Artifact is the graduate literary journal for Stetson University’s MFA of the Americas. We are a semiannual journal seeking to publish a diverse set of poetry and prose in May and October of each year. We seek work that pushes the limit on genre and form. Send your experimental work our way! 

*Please submit in Microsoft Compatible formats*

We also publish literary postcards that go along with each issue.

O/A Blog publishes essays that focus on process and craft along with interviews with writers and artists.



 We are looking for for fresh translations of prose and poetry. If you have a new take on translation, be it digitally mediated, performance based, or shifting between media, we want to see your work. Translations of experimental works by writers across the Americas is highly desired. 

Translation, in our sense, does not have to be from one langauge to another. We welcome all versions of translation - from the purposefully incorrect (while done with respect), and translations that take into account the world around the translated piece as well! 

 

Prose includes fiction, nonfiction, and all the gray areas in between. We accept prose works up to 6,000 words.
