Our poetics

We at petrichor welcome established writers, newbies, outsiders, and all points in between. Ours is a free and open archive, seeking to promote bold identities, othered voices, and whispers in the darkness that want to be loud. We encourage work that makes us think, feel, and even go “huh?” We like surprises.

When words aren’t enough, we like work that incorporates visual elements into textual frames. The letter as a symbol, the word as a sign, we love these as well.
