Brickplight is a quarterly poetry journal that exists to promote the exploration of unique identities through daring poetry.
We seek poets who revel in undermining conventional thinking by giving voice to what conformity would have us bury and forget—the fact that we are diverse, feeling, and thoughtful beings, completely singular in character, circumstance, and in our possible modes of expression, and so invaluable to each other as gateways to creative discovery.
This mad swirlin’ creative outlet is a place to showcase the many diverse artists in this big, blue, beat-utiful world of ours and to get this madness into as many heads as possible.
Mad Swirl is an on-line creative outlet featuring a constantly swirled and updated collection of art, poetry and prose from all parts of the globe, including Scratched; a new short piece of fiction by J H Martin, which you can read for free here.

We are a micro press. And we are a craft press. We have Vandercooks in our bones, a Chandler & Price in the garage, and Heidleberg Windmills in our dreams. Letterpress printing is our past and our future. The ink that gives life to the machines stains our fingers and runs in our blood…
FORTH was founded in 2009 as a print publication in Los Angeles, and was relaunched as a digital magazine in June 2014.

Throughout history, the one element that has made us uniquely human is the ability to make art. This fascinating element of the human condition includes the capacity to think creatively, to produce ideas and images that help us figure out what our thoughts and feelings really mean, and to share them with the world at the click of a button. So here, in these strange digital pages, we explore, expose, and celebrate this forward-moving, always-evolving creative energy that makes us human.
