COUNTERCLOCK is a literary arts organization committed to exploring the diversity, complexity, and resilience of the human experience through publishing a triannual literary arts magazine and hosting an interdisciplinary arts fellowship.

Fee-free submissions will open for Issue 8 of COUNTERCLOCK Journal on November 1, 2019. We’re looking for experimental and honest pieces of poetry, prose, art, and cross-genre work.

Feedback Corner is open to all submitters, year-round.

The 2019 COUNTERCLOCK Arts Collective is a fellowship program that allows emerging creative writers, visual artists, and musicians to explore, illuminate, and grow through collaborating on interdisciplinary projects. Click above to see the gallery of their works & below to meet the fellows.
