RAGAD is an online and print literary magazine that is published quarterly featuring two stories per print installment. Our online magazine is updated monthly, also featuring two or three stories per with a more experimental form to them. Our print installments are distributed in the the Chicagoland area, the Milwaukee metro area, and select cities across the country--check back for actual locations soon.
We publish short fiction of 2500 words or less from new writers and established names, as well as anyone in between. Check our submission guidelines for info on getting your great work to us. We run on volunteer power, and if anyone would like to help us out as far as distribution, promotion, or just hanging out with us goes, please drop us a line. And submit now, for you'll be hooked on RAGAD before you know it.
