About

 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 broad 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 Creative Writing Program, English Department, and the support of generous donors like you. The journal is staffed by a team of graduate and undergraduate editorial interns, who earn course credit for assisting in the production of our issues. Previously unpublished and emerging writers are highly encouraged to submit. Please visit our archives to sample issues of the journal.
