Silk Road

Silk Road

Twice a year Silk Road publishes finely crafted fiction, essays, poetry and translations that give readers a vivid point of exchange or an interaction that could occur only in a specific time and space. This event could be captured in a poem or short story as well as in reportage or travel writing. It could happen in a classroom in New Zealand or on the expanse of the African plains. We welcome work set in any location in the world including the U.S. Anyone from anywhere can enter into the conversation. We all start somewhere, so "place" is the touchstone the magazine uses for the pieces we publish. However we operate with no narrow definition of that word. The writers we feature take our readers somewhere crucial, defining and relevant. Read More
