about

Postscript Magazine was formed in Paris, France in March 2018, and now has a global team of contributors. We post monthly issues of art and writing that push the boundaries of critical thinking. All forms are welcome – poetry, fiction, social commentary, personal essays, reviews, research/academia, visual arts etc. 

You go to a footnote to find a specific detail, a more complex story. That is why we are Postscript: one footnote that gives space to lasting discourse on society and culture. Readers will be asked to leave their comfort zones, to go beyond what they know, to be curious and compassionate.

Ultimately, we seek to champion good and meaningful art and writing. Work that pushes the status quo of thought. Work that is culturally curious, restless and nuanced. Work that is intersectional. Work that destablilizes, decentralizes and challenges hegemony. Work that is creative, critical, and engages deeply with the internal and external.

We urge you to take what you see, think it over, discuss and share.

New issues come out on the first Monday of each month.


OUR COLUMNS

milk & vodka: 
borderline satirical play on Rupi Kaur’s “milk & honey.” Where Kaur’s bite-size writings merely touch the surface of topics such as feminism, race & postcolonialism, Postscript seeks to create more complex and expansive poetic discourse around such issues. The result is tougher, more biting, more piercing, more striking, deeper and sometimes uglier; the softness of honey gives way to the sting of vodka.

invisible cities:
inspired by Italo Calvino and our own travels, this column is an attempt at capturing various real and imagined cities, their complexities, beauties and daily tragedies, as well as mundaneness & functionality, in art and literature. Read about a refugee slum in Paris, the tourist’s experience in Vatican City, the young boys of Milton, Ontario, Florence’s cobblestones, and so much more.

style odyssey:
don’t be confused by its name, the style odyssey column is not in the vein of “10 cool hats for the summer” but rather examines fashion as an art, concept and industry both creatively AND critically. Postscript is looking for pieces that delve into how clothing works as a political tool, the complex issue of cultural appropriation, and much more. [launching soon]
