Topograph is an online (for now), place-based literary journal that wants to add depth and meaning to the map. We want to show what makes places distinct; uncover the historical and emotional topographies of land; and reveal aspects of where people live and have been, ugly or beautiful, that are essential to understanding those places.

What we want

Show us the where. We want work in which the setting is a character. We want work that examines a place's meaning. We want work that reveals the boundaries between places. We prefer work about places we don't hear too much about.

We welcome work from emerging writers young and old. If you've never been published before, take a swing with us.
