Platform Review is an ARTS By The People project. Along with our literary open mic reading series, The Platform, and our writing workshops, our annual literary journal promotes opportunities for a diversity of writers and artists. The mission of Platform Review is to showcase the literary voices and visual art from our growing community and beyond. We publish annually in print, and our submission period runs from Sep 1 to Jan 15 each year. When submissions are open please send work to one of the genres below (Fiction, Creative Nonfiction, Poetry, Visual Art).
Platform Chapbook Series is an ARTS By The People project. Each year during the month of March we accept chapbook manuscript submissions in both poetry and prose. The selected manuscripts, one in each genre, are made into one-hundred handmade, numbered and signed chapbooks, designed and created by artist LK James.
Moving Words is an ARTS By The People project made possible by a generous grant from The Santiago Abut Foundation, in loving memory of Santi Abut. It is a project that makes possible transnational collaboration among artists of prose, poetry, voice acting, and animation. During the months of May and June of each year artists may submit writing of any form, be it poetry or prose, that showcases the lyrical qualities of language. A dozen spoken-word pieces will be selected, workshopped, and turned into short animated films.
