Apophoreta is a Canadian literary magazine edited and published by Joseph Gerbasi and Jesse Hill. Apophoreta will publish poems, short fiction, essays, translations, reviews and epistles.  Each issue will be published both online and in short-run print copies.

We make no grand claim for either the genius of our intent or the genius of our contributors. Rather, we wish merely to collect and share such literature as we ourselves would wish to read.

We find in common a love of literature that employs both the senses and the intellect, literature that is wrought with care, purpose, and play,  literature that betokens an engagement with literary history as much as it does a dissatisfaction with mere novelty. In short, we like writing that speaks to its time and place with a view to what is greater, striving thus to unite the particular and the universal. Such is world-literature and multiculturalism in the highest sense.

We are currently accepting submissions for our first issue. The submission deadline is September 1st, 2012.

If submitting poems, we consider no more than 6 per submission. If submitting anything else, we consider no more than 5000 words per submission.
