X-R-A-Y Literary Magazine



X–R-A-Y Literary Magazine’s vision is to publish uncomfortable, entertaining, unforgettable prose that shines brighter than the skeleton in your body, prose that sees through the skin and reveals something deeper.

We are wrecked a lot. We sometimes spell things wrong. Jennifer is dyslexic. But none of it matters when we read. We like what you send, and we care about your work. We are kind people over here at X–R-A-Y Literary Magazine. We may, however, misspell your name. Or the title of your piece. Advanced apologies. We hope it doesn’t matter to you as much as reading and writing kick-ass stories.
