Quality, Sustainable, Independent Publishing

Sequestrum‘s mission is to be an affordable, sustainable home to quality literature. Rather than charge a set sticker price per issue, we offer a unique, pay-what-you-can subscription format.

We only ask that you’re honest in selecting your subscription level. Whether someone makes nine figures or nine dollars an hour, we keep our rates reasonable so that everyone can enjoy outstanding, sustainable literature.
