The Avenue is a Mid-Atlantic-based literary journal open to the joy that is all things literary. We are committed to the quirky, the dark, the artistic, the tortured, the beautiful, the disenfranchised. If it’s writing and if it’s good, we want it. Fiction, non-fiction, poetry, genre, experimental, theatrical. We want it. Give it to us. Now.

The first issue’s theme was The Good, the Bad, the Ugly, the City. Our second issue, recently released, was themed Woman. Up next: Southern.

All submissions must in some way relate to our themes. How it relates, we leave to you.
