ANGLES

URGENT. ATTENTIVE. INNOVATIVE.

ANGLES, formerly known as “The Angle,” is St. John Fisher College’s literary magazine. As depicted in our header image, a mock-funeral protest on Fisher’s campus from the 1960’s, ANGLES is inspired and molded by a history of youthful audacity. As a publication edited by undergraduates, we value and prioritize college-aged voices with distinct perspectives, and take pride in being among a writer’s first publications.

 

MISSION & SENSIBILITY

ANGLES is a magazine that publishes brief prose and poetry that reveals distinct and important perspectives on ourselves and our world. We seek fresh, urgent writing that cares about language and pays close attention to it, that uses form and structure purposefully, and that isn’t afraid to take risks. We value traditions but are keen on challenging them. As a publication edited by undergraduates, we value and prioritize college-aged voices with distinct perspectives, and take pride in being among a writer’s first publications.

 

What we’re looking for:
Brief, punchy, personal, imagistic, provocative writing. Youthful, generational, edgy writing. Writing with perspectives that are unique, overlooked, or underrepresented.  Innovative forms that shows us something familiar. Traditional forms that shows us something new. Writing with thrilling language, and above all, an urgent voice that demands our attention.
