Carmina Magazine - Poetry (Go to Fiction)

Simply put, we are looking for creative works that are inspired by some aspect of classical studies and that incorporate and/or allude to classical themes, places, characters, and stories in some way, shape, or form. We accept both poetry and prose, as well as original photography. We accept work in all genres — you can send us horror, fantasy, postmodernism, haiku, whatever suits your fancy. Our only main “requirement” is that the work somehow relates to classics on some level, and we welcome wide ranges of artistic interpretation and expression in this regard.

We want to see all the imaginative, unique, and thoughtful ways modern-day writers, poets, and artists pull material from ancient literature and myth to rework it into something entirely new. We want to see how classics can inspire creativity thousands of years after the Greco-Roman heyday. We want your epic-style poems, your modern versions of ancient tales, imaginings about the ancient world, stories that feature classical names and places, stories that hint at familiar ancient mythologies, retellings, reworkings, rewritings, anything and everything in-between that somehow, somewhere, owes some seed of inspiration to classics. We are, after all, a magazine devoted to classics in the modern day, and we love works that demonstrate how something so ancient can still be relevant even now.
