Founded by graduates of Iowa State University and the University of Iowa, Sequestrum has faithfully published award-winning writers and new voices for an international, 1,000+ monthly readership since its advent. We are a pay-what-you-can journal, meaning the writers and works we feature can be accessed regardless of economic standing. Our guiding principle isn’t tethered to any aesthetic or type of writer or even to a production calendar: Our sole obligation is to quality writing, to walking our editorial divining rod across the literary landscape and routing-out the aquifers and the fresh springs and the ice fields and signaling to the world, Here: Dig.

If you’ve got something you’d like to contribute, browse our Archives and check out our Submission Guidelines. Curious about what a “sequestrum” is or our publication philosophy? Read About Us. Like what you read? Consider Subscribing to catch any future goings-ons, or be part of our unique financial structure and lend some Support. We’re proud of the little plot of literary landscape we occupy and the writers and artists we share it with. Thanks for visiting.
