Miracle Monocle is an online journal of innovative literary and visual art. Published annually in the Spring, the journal features poems, short stories, literary nonfiction, and a range of experimental works. We pride ourselves on serving as a home for flash and micro fictions of all varieties, as well as works with genre indeterminacies, fresh collaborations, and re-invigorations of more traditional forms.
The journal was founded in 2009 by Jacob Thomas Berns and Matthew Crady; was re-established and renewed by Ryan Ridge in 2015; and is now helmed by Faculty Editor, Sarah Anne Strickley. Miracle Monocle is made possible by funding from the University of Louisville's English Department, and is staffed by a team of graduate and undergraduate editors.
Previously unpublished and emerging writers are highly encouraged to submit. Please visit our archives to sample issues of the journal.
