Founded in 2006 by M. Bartley Seigel and Roxane Gay, PANK Magazine is a literary magazine fostering access to emerging and innovative poetry and prose, publishing the brightest and most promising writers for the most adventurous readers. Up country, to the end of the road, to a far shore and the edge of things, to a place of amalgamation and unplumbed depths, a place inhabited by contradiction, quirk and startling anomaly, where the known is made and unmade, and where unimagined futures are born, PANK


“Publishes a raft of experimental fiction and poetry.”
New York Times Magazine

“PANK’s vision is innovative and eccentric.”
Poets & Writers Magazine

“A uniquely gritty approach.”
Poetry Foundation

“Totally on the money.”

“More interested in innovation than recycling what’s already been done… bursting with tasty high-minded prose with a touch of tongue and cheek.”
Shelflife Magazine
