It’s exciting to say it—phoebe journal has been celebrating and publishing great literary and artistic work for 50 years now. Read 50.1 and stay tuned for 50.2, our contest issue, coming soon.
The Incarcerated Writers Project was started by the editors at phoebe as a way to open the publishing platform to writers in prisons across the United States. This population has been traditionally overlooked, undervalued, and pushed to the margins. We believe the inclusion of their literary voices will enlarge and ultimately strengthen the artistic and scholarly community.
