Our Mission

 We strive to be the foundation for aspiring writers and inspire them to continue on their writing journeys.

Though rejection is an inevitable part of the process, our literary magazine acts as a stepping stone for emerging writers and can help them grow instead of getting severely discouraged after another form rejection.

As previously mentioned, our issues will be split up into quarterly themes, and because we are offering feedback/a publishing opportunity to every submitter, we will have a submission cap. Those who miss out in the first round will have the opportunity to subscribe to our newsletter and receive an update when submissions re-open. Check us out on our Instagram (@sonderful.writings) for updates as well!

We hope to reach national and international audiences, so please spread the word about our publication or sign up for our newsletter. We are also currently considering workshops for interested young writers.
