Ensley_3This summer was a spiky, aching one. We hurt all around the world and all around our skin and all around ours and each other’s and our exes and our lovers bodies. We fought not to drown and we stayed above the surface, just barely. We drank cold coffee and wrote love letters we tore with our teeth and shoved in bathtubs. Or maybe we were happy. Or maybe we were blissful in our alive-ness. Or maybe things were easy, as easy as they ever are, as easy as  they come.

About Vagabond City

Let us be the home for your weird, your emotional, your challenge. Tell us how culture/religion/love/society has failed you.

We have a special appreciation for the true writing of 20-somethings whose misery is dashed aside as hipster apathy, melodrama, too many emotions. There is no such thing as too many emotions. Don’t restrict your writing to your tumblr. Tell us what you feel. We are the home for writing typically thought of as “not good enough” by the pretentious idea that only some people have valuable things to say.

We accept submissions on a rolling basis, and have one main priority: to tell the stories you haven’t heard, especially by writers and artists from marginalized groups.
