a literary journal
our issue themes shine a light on human struggles
our writers navigate those struggles through poetry, prose, and creative nonfiction.
how is wards different?
every writer receives personalized feedback. there are no form rejection letters, no vague praise when you’re accepted for publication.
when you send your work out to sea, it will land safely on our shore. expect workshop-level critique and constructive criticism that you, the artist, will make of what you wish.
as a city by the sea, we welcome you, and we send you off with wind in your sails and a map to guide your literary journey.
that’s all we can offer for now; that, and a small cash prize for each genre every issue.
