From the Editor
Fifth Wednesday Journal is a nonprofit, independent literary journal published twice a year in print. Our mission is to bring the finest fiction, poetry, essays, photography, interviews, and book reviews into your everyday life. We’re defining literature. In real context.
We accept electronic submissions in the categories of fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, essays, and black-and-white photography. All submissions to Fifth Wednesday
Journal must be original, unpublished work in English. We welcome simultaneous submissions with the understanding that you will inform us if your work is accepted elsewhere. We recommend that writers familiarize themselves with FWJ before submitting their work. Selections from previous issues are available for guidance at the
